A 57-year-old man, whose death in police custody is to be investigated by the police watchdog, has been named.

David Hill died at a police station in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire. Police said he was arrested close to his home in Peaks Lane, New Waltham.

Humberside Police have referred the death to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

The IPCC was informed at 23:00 BST on Tuesday after which custody staff were interviewed and CCTV viewed.

Police said Mr Hill was arrested for criminal damage and affray.

A post-mortem examination was held on Wednesday but was inconclusive, according to the IPCC.

IPCC staff have met with Mr Hill's family to explain the investigation.
