A concerned pal had called the British Embassy in Rome after failing to reach him on the telephone at his home in Città di Castello north of the Italian capital.

Officials said that letters found on the floor suggested the man had been dead since March and his body had mummified as a result.

A police source said:”The British man had bought the house earlier this year and was restoring it. The body was completely mummified and the responders were shocked at the scene.”

Neighbours in Italy said Mr Jobson, from Surbiton, Surrey, had bought the house four years ago and was renovating it.
