Man with head injury has now died - Wigan
Tuesday 9th October, 2012

A 60-year-old man who suffered a serious head injury in Wigan has now died.

In the early hours of Monday 8 October 2012, police received a report from Wigan Royal Infirmary that a man had been brought in with a serious head injury.

He remained in hospital and has sadly died today.

It is believed the man suffered his injury outside Chicago Rock on King Street some time around 1.30am.

It is believed he was pushed over before falling backwards, striking his head on the pavement.

A 29-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident has now been re-arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and remains in custody for police questioning.

A post mortem examination is expected to take place later today to establish the cause of death.

Detective Inspector Andy Cunliffe said: "This incident has now taken a tragic turn and our thoughts are with the manís family at this time.

ďIt is clearly a very distressing incident and I want to reassure members of the public that we remain determined to establish the full facts.

ďAs part of that we have established that there were are a number of people outside Chicago Rock on King Street at the time the man sustained his injuries.

"We remain keen to speak to a group of women who were seen outside Chicago Rock just before the incident and I would ask this group or anyone else who may have been in the area between 1am and 2.30am on Sunday to come forward."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 1722 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
