Police are investigating after a body was found outside a building at St Mary’s Hospital last Wednesday (28).

The Isle of Wight NHS Trust says the death is not being treated as suspicious.

A spokesperson for the trust said:

“We are working with police on behalf of the coroner to investigate the circumstances surrounding the non-suspicious death of an individual discovered last Wednesday 28th November outside a building on the St. Mary’s Hospital site.

“Our thoughts at this time are with the family and friends of the individual concerned.

“As with all unexpected deaths, this will be the subject of a Coroner’s Inquest and we are unable to comment further at this stage.”
