Appeal for witnesses following death of man in public toilets in Salisbury

Detectives are appealing for witnesses following the death of a man in public toilets in Salisbury earlier today.

Following the death of a man in Salisbury early this morning, detectives can now confirm that the incident is not believed to be suspicious.

Officers were called by the ambulance service shortly before 4am today (08/09) following the discovery of a man in the public toilets in Market Place.
Sadly, the man was pronounced dead at the scene. We can now confirm he is a local 27-year-old man and we are in the process of informing his family.
A large cordon was put in place at the scene and following enquiries carried out today we can also confirm that his death is not being treated as suspicious.
However, we would still like to hear from anyone who may have used the public toilets between 10.30pm last night and 4am this morning or anyone who was in the Market Square during these times.
Detective Inspector Joe Saunders, from Salisbury CID, said: “We would like to speak to anyone who was in the Market Square, including anyone who used the public toilets there, between 10pm last night and 3am this morning.”

Inspector Pete Sparrow, from the Salisbury Area Community Policing Team, said: “Due to the nature of the incident a large cordon was put in place to allow detectives to carry out their initial enquiries.

“Now, we are in a position to significantly reduce this cordon, allowing some of the local businesses in the area to reopen. Salisbury City Council will now be managing a much smaller cordon around the public toilets.

“I would like to thank the local community for their cooperation and assistance this morning.”

Anyone with information should call Salisbury CID on 101, quoting log 17 of today (08/09).

Salisbury City Council has confirmed that today’s Charter Market has been cancelled as a result of the ongoing investigation.
