Head injury man found in Grays road dies

A man found with head injuries in a road in Essex has died in hospital within hours of being discovered.

A passerby discovered the man, aged in his 50s, in Wharf Road, Grays, at about 01:15 BST.

He was taken to Basildon Hospital, where he died shortly after 04:00 BST. He has been described by police as black and about 6ft (1.83m) tall.

In an update on Saturday afternoon, police said there were no suspicious circumstances.

They believe the man was in Grays town centre, near the railway and bus station in Crown Road, shortly before he was found.

"Medical evidence is consistent with witness statements that the events which led to his death are not suspicious," a police spokesman said.

The case will be passed to the Coroner, he added.
