A man from St Neots has died almost 3 months after he was found with head injuries outside a local pub.

John Lord, 59, from Little Paxton was taken to hospital on 14th December after suffering head injuries outside the Tudor Rose Club, in Huntingdon Road, St Neots.
It is still not known how he got the injuries and detectives are still trying to work out exactly what happened.
He was initially discharged from hospital but later readmitted. He died on Monday (4th march) at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
It is not yet known whether he died as a result of the head injuries suffered in December.
Detective Inspector Jon McAdam, leading the investigation, said:

"Our thoughts are with the family of Mr Lord. We have been continuing our investigation since the initial incident to try to piece together exactly what happened on that night in December."
"A number of key individuals have been spoken to in relation to this incident and we are continuing our enquiries and speaking to other potential witnesses."
"We are still focused on establishing the facts about the incident on December 14th and there remain a number of people who we are still looking to speak with."
"We know there a number of people who either spoke to Mr Lord that night or were in the close proximity of where he was when he suffered the injuries."
"I would urge these people to come forward and speak to us."
