Body found 'in public toilets' at Essex hospital as police called to welfare concerns
The body of a man has been found at an Essex hospital after police were called over welfare concerns.
Police were called to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford yesterday, shortly before 3pm, after concerns for the welfare of a man.
Sadly, the body of a man, who police say was not a patient on the ward, was reportedly found in the public toilets at the hospital.
His death is being treated as unexpected, but not suspicious.

"We arrived and, sadly, found a man had died.
"The death is being treated as unexpected but not suspicious and a file is being prepared for the coroner."
