Poor bloke, surely the paramedics should be equipped and allowed to gain entry if its a life or death situation. I hope they weren't waiting outside for the police.

"Man dies after emergency services called to house on Ashley Road in Boscombe" - Makes it sound as if the emergency services were responsible for his death!
(Should be re-worded as "Emergency services called to house in Ashley Road following a male's death").

My thoughts are with his family

If it was in Queens Park, nothing would be printed. Sad as it is, people die at home all the time.
My Father died at home after suffering a massive heart attack & that didn't make the local rag.
Why does the ECHO persist in making headlines out of anything that happens in Boscombe?
Another 'non story'.

a very poorly written headline- it makes it (intentionally?) sound as if the man dies AFTER the emergency services were called, with an implication they may have been at fault- once again the Echo tries to make a sensationalist story by poor writing.
