Detectives are now awaiting the results of a toxicology report.

Police were called on Sunday, April 30, to the Fletton Recreation Ground at about 10.45am.

His death was initially treated as non-suspicious, but following an anonymous tip off from a member of the public a woman was arrested on Tuesday evening on suspicion of his murder.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area in the early hours of Sunday morning or who saw anything suspicious. In particular they would like to hear from anyone who saw a person on a mobility scooter, or who had one moved or stolen on the night.
