Police were unable to establish who the man was, how he had sustained his injuries and how long he had been lying there for when he was discovered, near the juntion of Alexandra Palace Way and Muswell Hill.

But officers say they now know the identity of the man - though next of kin have not yet been informed, efforts are being made to trace them.
