A man aged in his 20s found barely conscious in Bury St Edmunds, near West Suffolk College, earlier this week has died from his injuries.
Police were called by the ambulance service at 9pm on Tuesday, August 22, to reports that a man aged in his 20s had been found barely breathing in a field near to West Suffolk College in Out Risbygate. The area is known locally as the dip.
The man was taken to West Suffolk Hospital where he was diagnosed with a life-threatening bleed on the brain and has now died.
The cause of his injuries remains unexplained and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course.

They have both been bailed in connection with this incident until Tuesday, September 19, pending further enquires.
