Tragic discovery as ‘homeless’ man found lifeless in doorway

A man believed to be homeless was discovered lifeless in a doorway along Bloom Street in Manchester’s Gay Village.

The tragedy unfolded at 10.20am on Sunday, when passersby alerted the response of police and emergency services.

The man, who was recognised locally, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a spokesperson from Greater Manchester Police.

Authorities have clarified that the death is not deemed suspicious, and as of now, the cause of death remains undetermined.

Ongoing investigations, described as being in their early stages, are actively being pursued by the police.

The incident occurred as the first winter snow fell over night on Saturday, with freezing temperatures forecast by the Met Office.

A police forensic tent was erected on Bloom Street, spanning the road and pavement, with officers maintaining a vigilant presence.

A police cordon was established, extending across the road to the opposite car park. The specific location where the man was discovered was identified as the area between the Village Chippy and Roadie’s fast-food takeaway, adjacent to the taxi rank.

Greater Manchester Police is now compiling a file of evidence for the coroner’s office in Manchester.
