Appeal for help to identify man who died at bus stop

Police are releasing an e-fit to help to identify a man who died at a bus stop over ten years ago.

Police were called at around 11am on 16 December 2006 to reports of a man collapsed at a bus stop on Regent Street, at the junction with Carlton Street.

Officers and the ambulance service attended and the man was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Despite extensive enquiries, officers have been unable to identify the man and have today released an e-fit of him in the hope that a family member or friend recognises him.

The man was leaving bus 15 on the Paddington/ Eastbourne Terrace circular before he collapsed. However, it is unclear where on the route the man had got on the bus and he had no ID on him.

The man is described as a white man, between 50-60 years of old, of a slim build with grey hair and approximately 5ft 4ins tall.

PC Luke Flint, from Westminster Borough, said: “This is a very sad case in which not only has a man lost his life close to Christmas, but it is still possible that his family do not know that he has died.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers on 0207 321 7694 or via 101.
