POLICE today named the 48-year-old man who died after an altercation in Aldeburgh.

Michael Fox, of Franklin Road, Aldeburgh, died on Monday in Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge after collapsing in the street on Saturday.

Detectives are carrying out further investigations and have said the man had suffered a head injury following an “altercation” in the town last week - but the death is still being treated as “unexplained”.

It is thought Mr Fox was involved in an altercation in the Saxmundham Road area of Aldeburgh on March 17.

He returned home and told his family what had happened, but the incident was not reported to police officers and he did not seek medical help.

Post-mortem results showed he had suffered a head injury, though the exact nature of how it occurred is unknown.
