HUMBERSIDE Police were contacted by Scarborough General Hospital, shortly after 0600hrs yesterday morning (Sunday 17 March ), after a Bridlington man had been taken to the hospital by a friend in a serious condition.
The 23-year-old man was sadly pronounced dead at hospital and the police notified.
The circumstances of the man's death are not clear and officers are currently undertaking enquiries to establish events leading to his death.
There were no signs of violence and a post mortem examination is due to take place tomorrow (Tuesday 19 March) which is hoped may provide further information.
It's being reported that a 23-year-old man has died after being taken to hospital from the home of the artist David Hockney in Bridlington.
Scarborough Council is expected to vote today on whether to permanently remove memorial plaques and street signs that were created in memory of Jimmy Savile.
Councillors in Scarborough will move to remove Jimmy Savile from the seaside town's honour board, stripping him of the freedom of the borough he was awarded in 2005.
A motion to posthumously remove Savile's name until the Metropolitan Police concludes its probes will be considered at a full council meeting next Monday.
Scarborough Borough Council will then decide whether to permanently wipe his honorary link to the Yorkshire town, where he owned a second home and was buried overlooking the sea.
The council also plans to remove street signs and a memorial plaque that celebrated the late presenter's links to the town, and his headstone, which was recently removed and broken up at the family's request.
