Ap­peal af­ter man found dead at bus stop

Stockport Express - - News -

A MAN col­lapsed and died at a bus stop af­ter leav­ing a pub.

Po­lice are now work­ing to trace his move­ments and any­one he spoke to.

A pub­lic ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion has been is­sued.

The man, who is aged in his 60s but hasn’t been named by po­lice, was found ‘un­re­spon­sive with a head in­jury’ at the bus stop out­side the Romi­ley Arms on Stock­port Road, Romi­ley, near the rail­way sta­tion, GMP said.

It’s be­lieved he left the Friend­ship Inn pub on Stock­port Road nearby a short time ear­lier to walk to the bus stop.

A passer-by tried to re­vive him and di­alled 999 for help, but he was later pro­nounced dead.

Po­lice have con­firmed the death is not be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious, although no fur­ther de­tails have been re­vealed.

The alarm was raised at 11pm on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 14, but de­tails have only just been re­leased.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for any­one who spoke to the man be­fore he was found, or who has any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, to get in touch.

Det Insp Gina Bren­nand: “This is a very sad in­ci­dent and our thoughts re­main with the man’s fam­ily at this dif­fi­cult time. I would like to stress this isn’t be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious.

“We would like to build a clearer pic­ture of his mo­ments be­tween leav­ing the pub and reach­ing the bus stop, so we can give his fam­ily the an­swers they de­serve.

“We’d like to speak to any­one who per­haps spoke to the man on his way to the bus stop, or has any in­for­ma­tion.

“I would also like to thank the kind passersby who at­tempted to re­sus­ci­tate him and con­tacted the emer­gency ser­vices.”
