POLICE have announced that they are no longer treating as suspicious the death of a 54-year-old man found in Holywells Park, Ipswich today.

The body was discovered lying near to a pond in the park by a person walking their dog just after 8am today. Police and paramedics went to the scene, close to the children's play area, where the man was lying face down on the ground, already dead.

Police sealed off the park while they carried out investigations but, at 6.20pm today, they announced the death was no longer suspicious.

Anna Woolnough, spokeswoman for Suffolk police, said: "Following an examination by a Home Office pathologist, police are no longer treating the death of a 54-year-old man whose body was discovered in Holywells Park, Ipswich shortly after 8am this morning as suspicious."

The man's name has not been released as he is yet to be formally identified. An inquest into his death is expected to be held in due course.

Home Office pathologist Dr Michael Heath examined the body at Ipswich Hospital this afternoon.

Holywells Park will remain closed this evening and will reopen tomorrow morning.
