Emergency services were called to Northumberland Court, Northumberland Road, Shepway, at about 5pm.
It's reported a man, thought to be 69, had passed away in his flat. The circumstances have not yet been revealed.

It is thought he had been unwell for some time.
The area around the court and shops was cordoned off while investigations are completed.
