Man in his 30s found dead in Blackpool town centre

"Enquiries are underway to establish the man’s movements in the lead up to him being found and the cause of his death, which is currently being treated as unexplained."

The man, who was described locally as a member of Blackpool's homeless population who was placed in housing during the coronavirus pandemic, is the second person to be found dead at the Astoria Hotel in the past seven months.

In June 2021, the body of a man in his 30s was found at the property.

His death was not thought to be suspicious, and the investigation was passed to the coroner's court.
