It's now been revealed that the man had prior contact with the police.

A Salvation Army spokesperson said: “We are deeply saddened and offer our prayers and condolences to the family and friends of a man who has passed away outside our church in Bayhall Road.

“We will support the police in their investigations in any way we can. We cannot comment further while a police investigation is ongoing.”
