Man dies after after being found with serious head injury in Weston

A POLICE investigation is underway following the unexplained death of a man in Weston-super-Mare who was found with a ‘significant head injury’.

The man, in his 40s, was discovered at a residential address in Rydal Road at about 3.20am on Tuesday (November 16).

He was taken to hospital by paramedics but died in hospital yesterday (Wednesday). His family are aware of what has happened.

A woman in her 30s was arrested at the scene and has since been released under investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Roger Doxsey said: “Our enquiries into what happened are at a very early stage.

Post mortem

“A post-mortem will be carried out in due course to help us understand the cause of death, but we’re treating the man’s death as unexplained at this time.

“Our sympathies go out to his family and friends at this difficult time. We will ensure they are supported throughout our investigation.

“We’d ask anyone who saw something unusual or suspicious on Monday evening or Tuesday morning to get in touch. It may seem trivial or insignificant to you, but it could make a big difference to our investigation.”

Anyone with information about what happened should call 101 and give the call-handler reference number 5221269622.
