Body of man discovered in Birkenhead street

The body of a man in his 50s has been found in a Merseyside street.

Officers were called to Woodchurch Road in Birkenhead, Wirral at about 2100 BST on Friday, after a member of the public made the discovery.

A post-mortem investigation is due to be carried out but at this stage the death is not thought to be suspicious.

A police spokesman said the man had not yet been identified, but officers were no longer looking for Noel Sheehy, 56, who went missing from Prenton.
