UPDATE: Thetford man’s death ‘not suspicious’

The death of a man in Thetford is no longer being treated as suspicious, police said this afternoon.

Detectives had appealed for witnesses to help piece together the movements of a 55-year-old man who died yesterday at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

The man had been admitted to the hospital the previous evening with head injuries.

Paramedics were called to his home at 8pm on Friday where he had been found unconscious.

At 3pm the same day, the man had been a pedestrian when he was found in the road at the weigh bridge in Burrell Way. He had refused hospital treatment and was later returned home by paramedics.

Police had been treating the death as 'unexplained'.

But following a Home Office post mortem conducted today, detectives have established that there are no suspicious circumstances and will hand the enquiry over to the coroner.
