AN INQUEST into the unexplained death of a Latvian man in Pershore has been opened and adjourned.

Aleksandrs Andzans spent Saturday (May 17) evening socialising with work colleagues in Smiths Meadow, Wyre Piddle.

His colleagues helped take him home but after arriving his condition deteriorated and Mr Andzans was later admitted to hospital, with severe head and brain injuries.

Officers are appealing for two men they believe can help with their enquiries in trying to establish the circumstances leading up to his death.

Witnesses have spoken to police and believe they saw the 37-year-old suffer heavy falls in the nearby park.

Det Sgt Pete Sherwood said: “I wish to try and identify two men that were sat in the park all evening independent of this group.

“They are thought to have helped Mr Adzans’s colleagues to get him home safely.”

Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

Anyone with further information can contact police on the non-emergency number 101 or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
