Plymouth bookies robber: 'No charges' over Alan Levers death
Police have said they do not expect any charges against customers who detained a robber at a Plymouth bookmaker's before he died.
Alan Levers, 50, entered Ladbrokes in Crownhill Road on Friday wearing a gas mask and holding a suspected imitation pistol.
Mr Levers, from the Honicknowle area of Plymouth, was pinned down by four customers before police arrived.
Officers found him unconscious and he died minutes later.
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said: "We do not anticipate, at this time, any criminal proceedings being taken against those who detained the deceased.
"These key witnesses acted bravely under difficult circumstances and showed a disregard for their safety."
A spokesman for Ladbrokes said the company was assisting police.
The case has also been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission by Devon and Cornwall Police.
