Man found dead at Flint home

Chester Road, Flint

A MAN died after a fall at his home in Flint over the weekend, North Wales Police has confirmed.

Paramedics and police officers were called to the house in Chester Road at 7.30am yesterday (Sunday).

A Wales Ambulance Service NHS Trust spokesman said: “A man was found at the property but paramedics could do nothing for him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Police set up a cordon and later scene of crime experts were seen entering the terraced property.

Drinkers at the Tradesman’s Arms, two doors away from the man’s house, said officers spent several hours at the scene.

One said: “What we know is that a man, who we think is originally from Poland, fell down the stairs and broke his neck some time late on Saturday night or early Sunday morning, but the police and the CSI (crime scene investigators) people didn’t say anything to us.”

No one at the pub knew the dead man, but they said they didn’t think he’d been living there very long.

A North Wales Police spokeswoman confirmed the incident had been reported to police and had been initially investigated as an unexplained death.

“After an investigation by officers the matter is not being regarded as suspicious,” she added.

The man’s name has not been revealed. A post-mortem examination will be carried out before an inquest into his death is opened.
