Man found dead in car is named

A MAN was found dead in a car after police were called to Brynn Street on Sunday morning (February 27).

Officers were called to the residential street – to the back of St Helens Town Hall – at about 10.40am to reports of an injured man.

However, when they arrived at the scene, they found the body of 36-year-old Nicholas Corless, of Farndon Avenue, Sutton Manor, in a car parked on the street.

A police spokeswoman confirmed that his family was notified and a post mortem examination was due to take place in a bid to establish the cause of death.

Police were not treating the death as suspicious and the matter was referred to the coroner. An inquest into the cause of Mr Corless’s death was opened and adjourned yesterday.
