Police officers were called to an address in Bramshaw Road at around 1.20am on Wednesday (19/6), following reports of an assault. The ambulance service was also called and a 34-year-old man was taken to hospital, where he sadly later died.

A Home Office post-mortem which was carried out has concluded there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

A 57-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the investigation. He was released without charge last night (21/7).

Detective Inspector Stuart Blaik, of the Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, said: “Following an extensive investigation, and in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, the death is no longer being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed to the coroner.

“I would like to continue to reassure the local community that this was an isolated incident and we are not looking for anyone else in connection to it. Our thoughts remain with the man’s family at this difficult time.”
