Police say they ‘are keeping an open mind’ as to whether the death of a man in Wisbech is connected to an assault on the same street the next day.

Officers were called to reports of a sudden death at a house in Oil Mill Lane just after 6:30pm on Saturday (July 25).

The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed to the coroner.

On Sunday afternoon (July 26), police cordoned off Oil Mill Lane after officers were called to reports of suspicious activity and found a man in his 40s and a woman in her 60s had been assaulted.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesperson said the pair had allegedly been assaulted by up to four men and left with serious injuries.
