UPDATE: Man found dead in Chorley

Blackburn Citizen: Police investigating major incident in Chorley Police investigating major incident in Chorley

A MAN in his 50s was found dead on Christmas Eve on a town centre residential street.

The grim discovery was reported by a resident at around 7.30am on Gillibrand Walks, Chorley.

Police said they were treating it as a “serious incident” and immediately sealed off the whole of Gillibrand walks along with sections of Carrington Road, Hamilton Road and Regent Road.

A police spokesman, said: “Around 7.30am on Tuesday, December 24 police received a call from a member of the public reporting that they had found the body of a man lying in the street on Gillibrand Walks.

“The man is believed to be aged in his 50s and his death is currently being treated as unexplained. A post mortem examination will be carried out later this afternoon to try and establish how the man died.

Gillibrand Walks and the other areas were sealed of until around noon as a forensic team in full white body suits combed the area.

Gillibrand Walks resident Mark Adams said he had seen the body when he woke this morning.

He said: “I heard a bang outside during the night around 3.30am but thought little of it as we often get shouting and people making noise outside.

“When I looked out this morning I saw someone lying close to a car near the pavement. At first I thought it was someone repairing the vehicle.

“The police and ambulance turned up very quickly and the street’s been sealed off ever since.”

Police have not yet released the identity of the person found.

How is this a major incident ??

Are there a large number of casualties?
Is there the need for large scale combined resources of the emergency services?
Is there the need for the mobilisation and organisation of the emergency services and supporting organisations, e.g. local authority, to cater for the threat of death, serious injury or homelessness to a large number of people?.
Is it an event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare in a place in the UK ?
Is it an event or situation which threatens serious damage to the environment of a place in the UK ?
Is it war or terrorism which threatens serious damage to the security of the UK.?
No, I dont think it is any of the above is it Telegraph! Therefore it isnt a Major Incident

To the first two posters on here I would say that until it has been established how and why this poor unfortunate man has met his demise then it is very much a major incident!
Why not allow the police the time to make their enquiries before posting such comments.
At present we don't know the full facts ie: was it murder/suicide/accid
ental? Was it chemical/biological, have firearms been involved, is a suspect at large are other people at risk?
However this poor individual, whoever he is, met with his demise, my condolences to his family and friends. There is never a good time to die but truelly tragic at Christmas.

Oh shut up suzi and everyone else saying "why is this a major inicident." . I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be saying that if this was a member of your family. Horrible to hear things like this any time of the year never mind Christmas eve. Take your heartless and ridiculous comments elsewhere.

By the way, if you read it properly it says the police are treating it as a serious incident not a major incident. Try picking up a dictionary once in a while !
