Cambridgeshire Police have released five people who were arrested yesterday after a man died at convenience store in Fen Ditton on Monday morning.

Police say they received reports of the man, who later died, biting a dog, outside the One Stop shop.

They also received reports of the dog owner being involved in an altercation with the man who died.

Officers are still trying to work out exactly what happened.

On Monday morning, officers were called at 6.33am to the One Stop shop at the corner of Ditton Lane and Thorpe Way.

Shortly afterwards, it appears the victim, a local man in his 40s, had died at the store - when police arrived, they arrested a 45 year-old man on suspicion of GBH.

At lunchtime, police say a 40 year-old Cambridge man was also arrested, along with a 50 year-old man from Fenstanton and a 44 year-old Cambridge man on suspicion of manslaughter.

On Monday evening a fifth man, a 69 year-old, was also arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

On Tuesday, Cambridgeshire Police say four men arrested on suspicion of manslaughter have been released on police bail.

The four men, three from Cambridge aged 40, 44 and 69, and a 50 year-old man from Fenstanton, were released until February 11.

A 45 year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm has been released with no further action taken. 

Cambridgeshire Police say a post mortem on the man who died has proved inconclusive.

Further tests will now be carried out and the death continues to be treated as unexplained.
