WIRRAL police are appealing to trace the next of kin of a man who was originally from Basingstoke.

Robert Marsh, 45, passed away at his home in New Ferry Road on Friday, August 2.

However, police are struggling to contact Mr Marsh's next of kin and are appealing for help to locate them.

The force believe he may have family in the Basingstoke area as he was originally from the town before moving out of the area.

A spokesman for Wirral Police said: "There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

"Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Mr Marsh's next of kin or can help is asked to contact Coroner's investigation officer Paula White on 0151 233 0126 or email paula.white@liverpool.gov.uk."
