A pensioner has died after reportedly shooting himself at a doctor's surgery in Frimley, near Camberley.

Surrey Police were called following reports of the sudden death of a man, believed to be in his 80s, at the surgery on Station Road.

Officers said they had reports of a firearm being discharged inside the building. The body of a man was discovered at the scene, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said there is no indication that anyone else was involved in the shooting and there is no longer a threat to the area.

Workers at the nearby Mane Street barbers were told about the incident. A female member of staff, who asked not to be named, told the Daily Telegraph: "The first thing we heard was the police sirens screaming as the first of nine cars sped up.

"Then there were armed police swarming about, the doctor's surgery was closed and nobody was allowed in.

"I didn't hear a gunshot myself but an elderly couple who had been in the surgery at the time said a man had shot himself.

"From what I've heard the man shot himself in the toilet or the reception area, not in an appointment."

A post-mortem examination will take place in due course. The area around the doctor's surgery has been cordoned off as police investigate the incident.
