A 32-YEAR-OLD man from Bude has been arrested following the death from a suspected drug overdose of a man found in toilets at Bideford Pannier Market on Monday afternoon.

Paramedics were called to the scene just before 3.30pm but the 25-year-old from Westward Ho! was pronounced dead an hour later.

Police confirmed the death was being treated as unexplained.

A man was arrested on suspicion of administering a poison substance with intent to endanger life and cause grievous bodily harm. He has been released on bail until March 25.

Formal identification is yet to take place and officers are currently in the process of contacting the family of the dead man.

A post-mortem examination is expected to be carried out in the next few days.
