A recluse died inside a labyrinth of tunnels he created in a mountain of litter at his house, it emerged today, reports the telegraph
Gordon Stewart, 74, was discovered at his home which was crammed floor to ceiling with rubbish, police said.
Thames Valley Police were called to the property in Broughton, Buckinghamshire, by concerned neighbours but were forced to bring in a Specialist Search and Recovery team to find the body
After forcing entry, officers discovered a maze of tunnels networking around the interior of the building, with Mr Stewart lying dead inside.
