Next of kin appeal launched after man found dead in Lowestoft

POLICE are seeking help in tracing the next of kin of a 65-year-old man who was found dead at his home address in Lowestoft.

Barry Mitchell was found by a neighbour at his home in Yeovil Road, at about noon yesterday (Monday, May 14).

Officers were subsequently called, and while there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances to his death, no details of his next-of-kin have been found, despite checks at the house and initial enquiries.

A police spokesman said: 'Police are asking anyone who may have information about any of Mr Mitchell's relatives to contact coroners officer Steve Bignell on 01986 835167 or PC David Phelps at Lowestoft on 101.'
