But he confirmed it was not believed there had been any foul play involved. Mr Griffiths said: “Officers were called to an address in Meadow Road, Neath, at around 1.50am yesterday following reports of a 47-year-old male collapsed in the house.
“The ambulance service was already in attendance and the male was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Inquiries into the death are continuing.”
Mr Griffiths said officers had a second call at 7.50am yesterday, this time to a house in Llansawel Crescent, Briton Ferry.
Again, it involved a 47-year-old man who had collapsed there.
The ambulance service was also present and again police investigations were continuing.
Mr Griffiths said there was nothing at this stage to suggest the deaths were in any way unconnected.
The cause or causes of death had not yet been established yesterday.
“We are keeping an open mind at this stage,” said Mr Griffiths. “We have local uniform officers out on the streets developing intelligence.
“It is far too early to reach any conclusions but we can confirm that foul play is not suspected.”
