POLICE are trying to trace the next of kin of a 61-year-old man who died at his home in Lowestoft.

Although there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances to Roger Sutton's death, police have no information about his next-of-kin and are appealing for anyone who may be able to help to come forward.

He died at his home in Park Road, Lowestoft, on Friday.

It is known he was living with his partner in Lowestoft until she died in November 2007, and it is thought his parents may have lived in the Leiston area but checks carried out to date have been unable to locate them or trace any other relatives.

Anyone with information that may help police find Mr Sutton's next-of-kin should call coroners' officer Paul Webber on 01986 835237.
