A man died after being found collapsed in a North Shore alleyway.

The 34-year-old, from the Bristol area, was found behind Cocker Street close to Dickson Road by a member of the public.

Specialist crime scene investigators taped the area off and searched for clues but the death is not being treated as suspicious, police said.

He was found seriously ill by a man who called the emergency services at around 7.20pm on Wednesday. He was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital but was pronounced dead.

A file has now been passed to the coroner and an inquest will be held to find out exactly what happened.

The man’s next of kin has been informed.
