Emergency services have confirmed the sudden death of a man at Waveney Docks last week.

The man, who was in his 50s, is not believed to be local and died suddenly on a boat in the dock near to Waveney Road, Lowestoft.

The police are treating the death as unexplained but it is not thought to be suspicious, with a file being prepared for the Coroner.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance service said: “We received a call at 5.45pm on Tuesday, April 24, to reports of a person unconscious at Waveney Road, Lowestoft.

“The East of England Ambulance Service Trust dispatched two ambulances and an ambulance officer; Sadly the person was pronounced dead at the scene.”
