Man found in car park with head injuries dies


A man who was found seriously injured in a public car park in George Street West, Luton, on Saturday afternoon has died.

The 50-year-old Polish national had been found unconscious by a concerned member of the public at approximately 4pm and taken to Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, where he was found to have suffered a bleed to the brain.

He died yesterday at around 6pm.

His death has been referred to Her Majesty’s Coroner and a post mortem will be carried out later this week to establish the cause of his death.

Detective Sergeant Steve Facer, investigating, is keen to trace members of the public who saw the man on Saturday afternoon and may be able to piece together the circumstances surrounding the injury.

DS Facer said: “We know who this person is, a Polish national living in Luton, but we are still trying to trace his next of kin.

“We also need to trace anyone who may have seen him in the George Street West area on Saturday afternoon and may be able to help piece together exactly how he came by this injury.

“He was wearing a black padded jacket, a black waist coat and red/white/blue training shoes.”

Anyone with information relating to this incident can contact DS Facer, in confidence, at Luton Police Station on 01582 394066, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
