A former police worker plummeted to his death from a fourth floor flat while reportedly urinating from the balcony after a night out.

Stuart Railton, 54, returned to his apartment after visiting his favourite karaoke bar in Udon Thani, northern Thailand, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The former accountant for the Lancashire Constabulary is believed to have lost his balance while trying to urinate and plunged over the railing of the balcony, which was littered with empty beer bottles. .

Security guards at the 'Top Mansion' apartment block heard a loud thud after he plunged from his room. His body was found at 4.45am local time.

Police searched the room and discovered empty beer bottles, two bottles of 'unknown medicine' and a pool of urine on the balcony.

Security guard Pichit Burawad, 44, said: 'We heard a loud noise and thought a signboard had fallen off.

'On the ground of the parking area, we found the body of a foreigner.'

Forensic officers found Stuart in a pool of blood while police who checked the room said there was no sign of a struggle.

They said he suffered a fractured skull, neck, and left arm.

Mr Railton had moved to the country a year ago after leaving Lancashire Constabulary, according to his Linkedin profile

Pol Lt Ginyotin Sapsin, from Mueang Udon Thani Provincial Police Station, said that they had questioned staff who told them that Stuart regularly visited the karaoke bar.

And I thought, Manneken Pis was a bronze statue in Brussels. But maybe that appartment just didn't have a toilet. Still no pleasure for people living beneath and getting a shower, when the wind changes the direction of that liquid jet. Disgusting!
