The husband of British singer Corinne Bailey Rae has been found dead at an address in Leeds.

The body of Jason Rae, a 31-year-old saxophonist with the Haggis Horns, was found on Saturday, according to a statement from West Yorkshire police.

A West Yorkshire police spokesperson said: "At 15:15 yesterday [Saturday March 22nd] police were called to a flat in the Hyde Park area of Leeds where they found the body of a 31-year-old man.

"A 32-year-old man was arrested for supplying controlled substances and has since been released on police bail, pending further inquiries.

The police statement said a post-mortem examination had been inconclusive and they were awaiting the results of toxicology tests.

The inquest is expected to open during the next week.

Mr Rae's band, the Haggis Horns, had been due to play a concert at the HiFi Club in Leeds on Sunday night.

His wife, Leeds-born Corinne Bailey Rae, 29, sold more than a million copies of her self-titled debut album in the US as well as winning two Mobo Awards in her native land.
