A jury has retired to consider its ruling in the inquest of a father-of-three who died after being restrained at Pontins Pakefield.
Colchester man Paul Reynolds died in hospital two days after being involved in an altercation with another guest at the holiday park, near Lowestoft, on Valentine's Day 2017.
Mr Reynolds, also known as Paul Gladwell, was restrained by security staff before being arrested, but he became unwell while in a police van.
An inquest into the 38-year-old's death began at Suffolk Coroners' Court on April 19.
On the 15th day of the inquest on Monday, area coroner Jacqueline Devonish asked the 10-person jury to consider a range of factors that could have caused Mr Reynolds' death - including the actions of Pontins staff, his health and whether physical restraint was necessary.
