Last updated at 20:43, Thursday, 21 August 2014
TRIBUTES have been paid to a 27-year-old Millom man who has died suddenly.
Police say they are not treating Nathan Lonsdale’s death as suspicious. The painter went to Millom School and his family still live in the town.
He had been living and working in the south of England. A spokeswoman for Devon and Cornwall Police said the force had been alerted to his death after a member of the public found his body in woods behind Ringmoore Way, Plymouth, at 9.50am on Sunday.
The spokeswoman said officers and a paramedic attended the scene, but Mr Lonsdale was unresponsive upon their arrival. She said the death was not being treated as suspicious.
A spokesman for the Plymouth coroner, Ian Arrow, said he anticipated that an inquest would be opened and adjourned today.
Mr Lonsdale’s family was in Plymouth yesterday for the formal identification.
A Facebook page has been set up in his memory and yesterday had been liked by almost 900 people. The page said Mr Lonsdale was “loved and liked by many and his family meant the world to him”.
For an extended tribute to Mr Lonsdale, see Friday's Evening Mail.
A statement on the page read: “The family would like to thank everyone for all your lovely messages at this very sad time.
“He has left a very big hole in the family and things will never be the same. The support off each other and friends will get us through the devastating loss of the most caring son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and uncle. xx.”
