A MAN in his 60s was found dead after concerns had been raised about his welfare.

Ambulance and police crews were called to Church Road in Droitwich on Monday (August 3) after residents had reported their concern for the man’s welfare that morning.

Police were initially called at 8.40am. The man's body was discovered just over two hours later, at 10.51am.

The ambulance service was called by the police when the body was found.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said they sent the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham, two land ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance critical care car to the scene.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We were called by police at 10.51am to Church Road in Droitwich to concern for a patient’s welfare.

“When crews arrived, they found one patient, a man. Unfortunately, nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”

A West Mercia Police spokesman said the man's death was not believed to be suspicious in any way.

“We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man from Droitwich at around 8.40am.

“The man was located on a lane near St Augustine’s Church. Sadly he was pronounced deceased. His death is not being treated as suspicious.”
