Police and paramedics were called to Steve Wright’s home on Monday morning after reports of “an incident” at his central London flat.

Emergency services rushed to the home of the radio presenter in Marylebone, west London. Wright was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Wednesday, police said the “unexpected” death of the 69-year-old was not being treated as suspicious and a report was being prepared for the coroner.

The details emerged after Wright’s family announced his death on Tuesday, delivering the bad news to “the millions of devoted radio listeners who had the good fortune and great pleasure of allowing Steve into their daily lives as one of the UK’s most enduring and popular radio personalities”.

In a career that spanned more than four decades, Wright amassed millions of loyal listeners with programmes which aired on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2.

The broadcaster had pre-recorded a “pre-Valentine’s Day Special” of his Sunday Love Songs, which aired just a day before his death.

Wright signed off the weekend mid-morning show on Radio 2, by telling listeners he was “back for more love songs next Sunday”.

BBC director-general Tim Davie led tributes to the DJ following the news, saying that Wright was “a truly wonderful broadcaster who has been a huge part of so many of our lives over many decades”.

The DJ lived in a block of luxury flats, where a two-bed apartment can sell for as much as £1.5million.

His apartment was located less than a 10-minute walk away from BBC’s Broadcasting House.

On Wednesday a neighbour described Wright as “a lovely guy”.

“He was a really great guy, he was just normal. He’d say ‘Hi’ and open the door for you,” he said.

The neighbour, who did not wish to be named added: “I’ve been here eight years and he was here before that, so he’s been here for quite a few years.

“He was very well known locally, he’d just wander round the streets. He didn’t have far to go to work, but no, he was a really decent guy.”

A Met Police spokesperson said: “We were called at 10:19hrs on Monday, 12 February after the body of a man was found at a flat in the Marylebone area.

“Officers responded along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service. A man in his 60s was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

“The death was unexpected but is not being treated as suspicious. A report will be prepared for the coroner.”

A spokesman for the London Ambulance Service said:  “We were called at 10.07am on Monday, February 12, to reports of an incident.

“We sent a number of resources to the scene. Very sadly, a person was pronounced dead at the scene.”
