Lowestoft wind turbine death man had links to Wisbech

Police are appealing for help in piecing together the circumstances leading up to the death of a 57-year-old man who was found dead at Gulliver wind turbine by Lowestoft's Ness Point on Saturday.

Officers were called just after 12.35am on Saturday to reports of a male hanging from the steps of the wind turbine at Gas Works Road.

Police attempted to revive the man, carrying out CPR until paramedics arrived, however he was pronounced dead at the scene. The death is not being treated as suspicious.

He has been identified as as Brian George Honeywill, and his next of kin have been informed of his death, however he is from Wisbech and it is not known what brought him to Lowestoft or what may have led to his death.

Police are now conducting enquiries to try and determine what happened for a coroners inquest – and are asking anyone who may have information that can help to contact officers.

It is known Mr Honeywill lived in Peterborough in 2008 before going to Germany for a period. He returned to the UK and went to live in Wisbech in 2010 and most recently lived at Mill Close in the town.

He appears to have then travelled to Lowestoft and stayed at a local guesthouse for at least one night before going to the turbine.
