TWO bodies were found within half of hour of each in two unrelated incidents.

The first incident concerned a 40-year-old man who died in a car park, while the second body, also of a man in his 40s, was found in a house.

Officers said the bodies of the men were discovered within half an hour of each other.

Just before 9am yesterday a man, who has been named locally as Wayne Chalmers, was discovered at a property in Pound Lane, Brixington.

Mr Chalmers, who has a garage at Pound Lane, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Half an hour earlier, at around 8.25am, police were called to the Camperdown Terrace car park, after a man was found by a member of the public.

He has not been named but is believed to be a dad of three from Exmouth.

Paying tribute to him, his fiancée wrote on the Echo facebook page: "My fiancé was a loving family man who adored and was adored by me and our three beautiful children.

"We are in total shock and disbelief that this has happened to us and he will be greatly missed by us."

Police and ambulance crews attended, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers say they are not treating either death as suspicious and are preparing a file for the coroner in both cases.

They also confirmed that that the two deaths were unrelated.
