Man, 30, dies after 'getting in difficulty' in fishing lake as four arrested

June 28, 2020

A MAN has died after "getting into trouble" in a fishing lake in the early hours of the morning.

Police were called after the man began struggling in the water at the three acre Longbridge Lake, near Romsey, Hants, with four people arrested.

He was rushed to nearby Southampton General Hospital following the incident at 2.30am on Friday June 26, but medics were unable to save him.

Hampshire Police say they originally arrested three men and a teenager on suspicion of murder but all four were later released.

The death of the man, from Trowbridge, Wilts, is not being treated as suspicious but a 34 year old man from Salisbury, Wilts, who was questioned is being investigated in connection with an assault which allegedly took place during the incident.

A Hampshire police spokesman today said: "We were called at 2.31am on June 26 following reports of a 30-year-old man in difficulty in the water at Longbridge Lake, near Romsey. He later died at Southampton General Hospital.

"The four arrested on suspicion of murder were a 40-year-old man from Devizes, Wilts, a 48-year-old man from Southampton and a 34-year-old man and 16 year old boy, both from Salisbury.

"All four have been released from custody with no further action.

"However the 34-year-old remains under investigation for an assault in connection with the incident."
