The father-of-two died after an incident at the Loveshack nightclub in Durham in July.

Police confirmed in January that no further action would be taken against seven members of the club’s door staff who were also arrested in connection with the incident.

Officers were called to the Walkergate complex in Durham at 1am on Sunday, July 24, after reports of a disturbance inside the club.
