Death-probe police fly out.

Two West Midlands Police officers have flown to Cyprus as part of an investigation into the death of a Birmingham holidaymaker.

Mr Seamus Martin McMahon was found dead at his home in Cyril Road, Small Heath, in June, after police were called to his ground-floor flat by a visitor. He had been dead for several weeks.

The 45-year-old widower had spent two weeks in Corfu where it was believed he was involved in a fight. He was treated at a hospital on the island but discharged himself and returned to Birmingham on June 1.

He was also treated at Heartlands Hospital in the city after suffering severe nose bleeds but again discharged himself a couple of days later. He died as a result of a blow to the nose.

Det Supt John Perkins, of Stechford police, said a detective inspector and a police constable flew to Corfu on Sunday evening.

"There are one or two positive lines of inquiry that officers are looking into. It is difficult because the events happened some time ago but detectives in Cyprus will be helping the officers," said Det Supt Perkins.
