Body of man in Chorley house 'not found for weeks'

The body of a Lancashire man found in his home had lain undiscovered for weeks or even months, police have said.

The man, thought to be Stuart Bolton, was found dead in a house on Wordsworth Terrace, Chorley, at 13:30 GMT Friday.

Officers were called to his house by a concerned neighbour. The man's death is not thought to be suspicious.

The Lancashire force has appealed for anyone who has been in contact with Mr Bolton, 42, in the past six months to get in touch with officers.

Det Insp Graham Coates said: "Stuart lived alone but was well known in the Chorley area.

"The last sightings that we have got are around the May or June time."

He added: "He was a character in the area and people would know him if they saw him on the street."
