Northampton Witness Appeal

Officers investigating an altercation in Northampton that led to the death of a man have released an image of a man they think could be a vital witness.

It is believed that 61 year old George Wedderburn of Byfield Road, St James, intervened in a fight in Abington Square, close to Steffans jewellers, just before 3.45am on Sunday, August 17.

Mr Wedderburn received significant head injuries and died in Northampton General Hospital on Saturday, August 23.

Detectives investigating the case have now released a picture of a man they’d like to speak to as they believe he may have tried to act as a peacemaker.

He was a tall, white man in his early twenties. He had a small beard and wore a blue T-shirt and glasses.

A 22-year-old man has already appeared at Northampton Magistrates Court charged with assault.

He is due to appear at Northampton Crown Court on Wednesday 3rd September.
