A man found dead outside a block of flats in Romford has been named.

John Rogers, 64, was found laying on a path outside Bracknell House, on Petersfield Avenue, Romford, on January 18.

There was a small cordon around the body

The Metropolitan Police received reports of a sudden death at around 7.17am.

At the time, a spokesperson from the force said: “Police are currently dealing with an unexplained death.

“Officers were called by the London Ambulance Service on Thursday January 18 at 7.17am to reports that a man was dead outside an address on Petersfield Avenue.

“Officers attended the scene. A man believed to be in his mid-sixties was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have not been informed.

“Forensic examinations at this stage are treating his death as unexplained. Our inquiries continue.”

A post mortem carried out by Doctor IT Saeed revealed the cause of death as aspiration of vomitous into airways and oesophagitis with sliding hiatus hernia.

The man was in his mid-sixties

Aspiration of vomitous into the airways is also known as aspiration pneumonia, a breathing condition where there is swilling on an infection of the lungs.

This occurs when food, saliva, liquids or vomit is breathed into the lungs or airways.

Oesophagitis is also known as inflammation of the lungs. Mr Rogers also suffered from a hiatus hernia in between his esophagus and stomach.
