The emergency services were called but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out, but there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said,

We were called just after 3:30pm to Pershore Street, near Birmingham Master Locksmiths.

Two ambulances, a paramedic and care team were sent to the scene.

On arrival crews found a man in cardiac arrest.

He was sadly confirmed dead at the scene.– A WEST MIDLANDS AMBULANCE SERVICE SPOKESWOMAN

Peter Caine, founder of Helping the Homeless in Birmingham, said Mr Walker’s death had “hit the team hard”.

Mr Caine said:

We’ve known him for around four years – since we started.

It hit the team quite badly.

He was a good guy and a pleasure for the team to meet on our outreach.

He always brought us a smile and will not be forgotten.

We hope he has found peace now.
