The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
An Avon and Somerset Constabulary police spokesperson said: “The man’s death was initially treated as suspicious due to the circumstances in which his body was found and the way in which it was reported to us.
“However, a forensic post-mortem examination has now been completed and determined the man died from natural causes.
“We appreciate this incident caused concern among the community and would like to thank people for their patience and understanding while we investigated.”
