The death of a middle aged man whose body was found in Wrexham town centre this morning is not being treated as suspicious according to North Wales Police.

Earlier today Wrexham.com received a number reports of police activity at the back of the former Woolworths building, now Discount UK, along with suggestions that a body had been found.

One post from @fourcornersbmw to our Twitter account said “SOCO and police down by the Nat West in town centre this morning”, he later added “someone carted away in an Ambulance”.

Police have now confirmed that a body was found on Lord Street at 6.30am today after they received reports of a man lying in the street.

He was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Part of Lord Street was cordoned off whilst investigators examined the scene, but the area has since been reopened.

Police confirmed that the death is not being treated as suspicious and that the North East Wales Coroner will be informed.
