A 28-year-old man whose body was found in Bishops Lydeard on New Year's Eve has been named by police as Kyle Hudson.

Avon and Somerset Police are now appealing to the public for help in tracing Mr Hudson last movements.

Kyle Hudson, 28, was found dead outside a property on Darby Way at around 10.20am.

A forensic post-mortem examination has been carried out and Kyle’s death is not being treated as suspicious.

However, as part of an on-going inquiry to establish exactly what happened, police would like to speak to anyone who saw Kyle in the hours before his body was found.

Detective Inspector Angela Burtonwood said: “Kyle’s family are being fully supported and kept updated on the progress of our inquiry. Our thoughts continue to be with them during this difficult time.

“We’re releasing a photograph of Kyle in the hope that someone recognises him and remembers seeing him early on December 31.

“Were you in Bishops Lydeard that morning? Did you see or speak to Kyle?

“Kyle’s phone is also missing and is something we’d like to trace.

“If you found a black iPhone 7 in the vicinity of Darby Way, or remember seeing one discarded please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5217296368.
