Cambridge Police are appealing for the public's help in identifying a man who died while out running in Milton yesterday evening (Wednesday 17th).

The man, believed to be in his 50s or 60s, was found collapsed by two members of the public on a footpath at the entrance to Milton Country Park off Fen Road at just after 5pm.

Police, ambulance and MAGPAS attended, but despite best efforts he was pronounced dead at about 5.35pm.

The man is described as white, large build with short light brown hair that was balding on top.

He was last wearing a red waterproof jacket with an orange high-vis tabard over the top. Under the jacket was a peach t-shirt and a black wicking running top. He was also wearing blue skin-tight leggings with knee-length dark blue shorts over the top, white socks and white Oasics trainers with red crossed stripes.

The only things in his possession were a door key and a green and white stripped handkerchief.

It is believed the man died of natural causes and the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Sergeant Stephen Phillips said:

"We want to do all we can to identify this man and make contact with those close to him. He could be someone who has failed to turn up for work this morning and hasn't called in sick.

I would urge anyone who may know someone who matches this description to contact us immediately."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 101.
