The death of a 38-year-old man in Crewe is no longer being treated as suspicious.

At approximately 13.00 on Friday 9 September officers were called to reports that body of a man had been found in the Stewart Street area of Crewe.

Officers attended the scene and the body of a 38-year-old local man was found in Valley Brook area. Next of kin were informed, although formal identification has not yet taken place.

Following a thorough investigation, which included forensics analysis, house to house enquiries and CCTV, officers are now satisfied that the death is not suspicious, however it remains unexplained and enquiries continue.
