Man identified after mystery fall
A man found dead on wasteland in Bristol has been identified.

The man, aged 18-30, is believed to have been dead for about two weeks when he was found on 8 September.

Police are expected to name him on Thursday. A member of the man's family saw a BBC news broadcast and contacted the police.

He died from multiple injuries and is thought to have fallen from Westmoreland House in Stokes Croft, Bristol, landing on waste ground.

The investigation into how he died continues.

When found, the man, of Afro-Caribbean origin, was wearing a khaki/grey hooded jacket, black Westworld denim jeans, and a white t-shirt.

He also had an Egyptian tattoo which depicted an eye - known as Horus.

He also had on grey and red woollen socks, dark blue/black swimming shorts and a pair of blue canvas open-toed Vans trainers.

Three keys on a climbing karabiner clip being used as a key ring were found in his pocket, along with a silver multi-tool and a small amount of cash.
