Detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of a 56-year-old man in Derry.

The man was admitted to hospital on the evening of Monday 29 January after he was discovered injured in the communal stairway of an apartment block in Inniscarn Crescent shortly after 8pm. Unfortunately the man did not recover from his injuries and died in hospital yesterday.

Detective Inspector Michael Winters said: “A post mortem examination will take place in due course to determine the cause of death. I am appealing for anyone who was in the area of Inniscarn Crescent on Monday evening and who witnessed the man falling or anyone with any relevant information contact detectives at Strand Road.”
