“The deceased, Mr Wilks, was found just after 9am with serious head injuries.

“An ambulance and police were called to the scene and paramedics worked on Mr Wilks to try in vain to save his life, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“A post mortem examination has been carried out and his family has been informed.”
