Police have named the man who was found dead at a Bridlington pub earlier this week.

The body of Karl Staten, of Fort Terrace, Bridlington, was discovered by a member of staff in the toilets of the Harbour Tavern, on Queen Street, at 11am on Tuesday 12 January.

The 65-year-old's death is being treated as unexplained following inconclusive post-mortem results and his family are receiving support from specially trained police officers.
