Post-mortem determines cause of death of pensioner found in car park

A post-mortem has revealed that a 70-year-old man who was found in a Farnborough car park died of natural causes

A 70-YEAR-OLD man who died in a Farnborough car park was suffering from heart problems.

The ambulance service called police to the Kingsmead multi-storey car park at 4.20pm on December 6, following the sudden death.

The results of a post-mortem held on December 10 revealed the man died of ‘natural causes due to heart disease’.

Charles Weager, from Blackwater, was in the car park shortly after the incident.

He had parked earlier in the day after travelling to London from Farnborough Main station and returned in the evening with his wife to collect his car.

He said: “When we got to the car park there were two ambulances outside and two police cars in the garage next door. I wondered if we would be able to get in. We walked up and on the second floor there were some policemen with police tape in their hands.”

He criticised the layout of the car park, saying that his car was parked on the third floor and he had to go all the way downstairs to the bottom to get a ticket then go back to put it in the car, adding that he too had a heart condition.

Hampshire police said the incident had not been treated as suspicious and that the pensioner’s next of kin have been informed. An inquest into the death will not be held.
