Police in Ealing are making a renewed attempt to identify a man who was found dead in a car park in 2017.

The deceased was discovered on Springbridge Mews near the centre of town in April 2017. He had been living under the ramp for approximately six years. The death is not thought to be suspicious. The police believe the man had been homeless and was known locally as Paul but attempts over the last four years to identify him have not been successful.

Officers now hope that this appeal may prompt someone to think about a family member or friend that they lost touch with four or more years ago.

Paul was a white man, 5ft 5ins tall, of slim build, aged between 55 – to 75 years old, with dark greying thinning hair.

DC Evans of the Met’s West Area Safeguarding Unit, said: “This man was a son to someone, a family member and likely a friend to others. There may be a family somewhere who have spent years wondering what happened to their loved one. If you can help us finally identify him so that his family and friends can be notified please don’t hesitate to get in touch."

If you have information you think might help identify this man call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 17FOU003946.
