Former Sky News correspondent James Forlong has died.

The 44 year old was discovered just after 2.30am on Saturday at Hove in East Sussex.

James had worked for Sky News for 10 years, and resigned in July 2003.

On Monday, a Sussex Police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a 44-year-old man from Hove was found dead at his address in the early hours of Saturday morning.”

He said the circumstances were not thought to be suspicious and a post-mortem was due to be carried out on Tuesday.

Nick Pollard, head of Sky News, said: “This is a terrible personal tragedy and a shocking blow for James’s family.

“Everyone here sends their deepest sympathies to James’s wife and children.”
