PUB staff have paid tribute to a “well-loved” local who collapsed outside The Black Heart pub in Camden.

Police are currently treating the 49-year-old man’s death as “unexplained”.

Oliver Hill, the bar manager at the pub on Greenland Place, said the man, who he only referred to as “Eddy”, was a “well-loved local” who was a “generous man”.

“We all miss him,” he told the New Journal.

Police were called at 11.10pm on Friday, June 21 to reports of a man collapsed outside the pub. The man was taken to hospital where he sadly died the following day.

Police said the man has formally been identified and his next of kin has been informed.

A Met spokesman said: “The death is being treated as unexplained and enquiries continue to establish the circumstances.

“Officers returned to the scene on Friday, June 28, as part of the ongoing investigation and remain keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the man’s collapse.”

A special post-mortem is planned for Thursday.

Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to contact police on 101, quoting 4057/28JUN or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
