Police ask for help to identify man

Police are appealing for help in identifying a man who died after falling over in Undercliff Road West in Felixstowe around 11.30pm on Friday, 25 January.

Emergency service were alerted after a member of the public saw the man fall over, hitting a wall as he fell. The man was taken to Ipswich hospital but around 12.50am on Saturday police were informed he had passed away.

Officers had begun enquiries to try and identify him, however the only item in his possession was a leather wallet containing three keys - there was no form of identification and no reference to where he came from.

Police officers have made extensive enquiries at local homes and blocks of flats in the area to see if anyone knows who he is but, so far, this has been unsuccessful.

  • The man is described as white, likely to be aged over 70, around 5ft 8ins - 5ft 9ins tall, of thin build, with grey receding hair.
  • He was wearing a three-quarter length rain mac in a creamy-khaki colour, a tweed suit jacket, a coral/ pink coloured jumper, blue corduroy trousers, black leather gloves and brown suede lace-up shoes.
  • He also has a faded tattoo on his forearm that appears to be a snake wrapped around a dagger.

There are no suspicious circumstances to the death and a post mortem will be held in due course to determine how he died.

Anyone who may have information that may help police identify the man is asked to contact the duty sergeant at Felixstowe by dialling 101.
