Canal body find appeal
by Guest

POLICE OFFICERS investigating the unexplained death of a man in Lydiate last week are treating the incident as not being suspicious.

Merseyside Police confirmed it had passed details of its investigation into the death of the elderly man, who was found in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal near a bridge on Southport Road last Monday (June 18) to the coroner for further investigation.

A force spokesperson said that officers had responded at around 5.30pm that afternoon following a call from a member of the public who had found a man's body in the canal, and pronounced him dead at the scene.

Enquiries are also underway in Lydiate and and a post mortem will take place to establish the cause of death of the man, who is yet to be formally identified.

Merseyside Police is appealing to anyone who has information that could help with their inquiries to contact detectives at Sefton CID on 0151 777 3011.
