Bridgnorth deaths: Police name one of two men found dead
One of the two men who died at a Bridgnorth caravan park last week has been named by police.
Kelvin Hanks, 73, is believed to have killed himself at Knowle Sands Caravan Park where he lived.
Mr Hanks' body was found on a track off the B4555 at around 4.30pm last Thursday shortly after a 67-year-old man was found dead in a nearby field.

A post mortem established Mr Hanks died as a result of hanging and there was no third party involvement in his death, West Mercia Police said.
Detectives have confirmed that the two deaths were linked and believe that the man found in the field had been assaulted.
However they have not confirmed whether or not they are treating his death as murder.
A post mortem and formal identification of the second man are yet to take place.
