Written by on June 10, 2020

An investigation is underway following the death of a man in Blackpool. 

We were called at 5.15pm yesterday (Tuesday, June 9th) to a report of a sudden death at an address on Talbot Road.

Police and paramedics attended and sadly the body of a man, believed to be in his 20s, was found dead inside the address.

The death is currently being treated as suspicious. A Home Office post mortem examination will be carried out in due course to try to establish the cause of death.

A 26-year-old man from Blackpool has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in custody.

Enquiries are on-going.

Det Ch Insp Pauline Stables, of Lancashire Police, said: “An investigation has been launched following the death of a man in Blackpool.

“These are tragic circumstances and my thoughts are with the man involved at this sad time.

“While we have made an arrest I would encourage anyone who feels they can assist with our enquiries to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting log number 1027 of June 9th or independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
