Lowestoft: Body Found Under Footbridge

A man's body has been found under a footbridge in Lowestoft this afternoon.

A mans body has been found on the ground underneath the footbridge over Bloodmoor Road in Lowestoft.

Police were called just before 3.20pm this afternoon, Monday 19 November, by a member of the public reporting the body under the bridge. It appears the man may have hung himself from the structure.

The road was closed by police and is likely to remain closed for some time while initial enquiries get underway at the scene.

The body is believed to be that of a man in his late 50s and at this stage, as is standard procedure, the death is being treated as unexplained although there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.

Anyone who saw anything in the area around this time is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101.
