Police are no longer treating the death of a man in Weston-super-Mare as suspicious.
A 71-year-old man was found in the town on Saturday, 1 December outside a house on Wadham Street and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers initially treated the death as suspicious due to the way in which his body was found and how it was reported to the police.
A forensic post-mortem examination however, has now determined that the man died from natural causes.
His next-of-kin have been informed and Avon and Somerset officers will now prepare a report for the coroner.
