Appeal after man found dead at bus stop
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.”
