Appeal for witnesses after man dies in Morecambe

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man died following a night out in Morecambe.
 
Terence Westbury, 52, collapsed at the junction of Lancaster Road and James Street at about 2.13 a.m. on Tuesday (November 25th) after getting out of a taxi and although he was taken by ambulance to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary he sadly died on Wednesday evening (November 26th).
 
Mr Westbury had suffered a head injury and his death is currently being treated as unexplained.  Officers are trying to establish how he may have come by his injuries.
 
A post mortem examination will be carried out to try to establish the exact cause of death.
 
Mr Westbury, of Morecambe, had been out in the Queen Street area of Morecambe on Tuesday evening and may have visited a number of pubs. Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen him to get in touch so they can try to piece together what happened to him.
 
Detective Inspector Bev Foster said: “At this stage it isn’t clear how Mr Westbury came by his injuries and while it may be that they have been caused by a fall we cannot rule out the possibility that there is some other cause, an assault for example. I would appeal to anyone who may have seen him out and about on Tuesday evening to get in touch with us.”
 
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting log number 0133 of Wednesday, November 26th.
