Police attended The Regent pub, on Kirkgate, at 2.09pm. A man was found unresponsive, and officers provided immediate first aid. Emergency treatment was continued by ambulance crews at the scene before he was taken to hospital, where he later died.

Police were initially called at 1.50pm about the incident, with a further call made at 2.01pm to say that the situation was escalating. As a matter of course, a referral has been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct due to the previous police contact before his death.
