Police are linking a man's death with a fight outside a city centre pub 12 days earlier.

Father-of-one Glenn Boocock, 37, was found dead at his home in Lincoln Road, Peterborough, after he failed to turn up for work on 18 June.

Police say the electrician had suffered a head injury after an affray outside O'Neill's in Broadway on 6 June.

In a tribute Mr Boocock's cousin, Lee White, described him as "an amazing and loving father".

A police spokeswoman said Mr Boocock attended hospital the morning after the incident, but discharged himself before all checks had been completed.

He had also visited hospital a second time as well as an NHS walk-in clinic, she said.

A post-mortem examination at Peterborough City Hospital on 20 June revealed Mr Boocock died as a result of a traumatic head injury.

His death is being treated as suspicious.

Mr White said: "Glenn was an only child and was a doting and loving son to his parents.

"He was the eldest of eight cousins, who considered him to be more like a brother because of how close they were.

"Glenn was a real family man. His son meant the world to him and he was such an amazing and loving father who lived and breathed for his little boy."

Det Insp Emma Pitts, of Cambridgeshire Police, said officers were "piecing together the circumstances around the incident on 6 June which Mr Boocock was involved in".

"We know there were people in the area around the time Mr Boocock suffered the head injury and I would appeal to them to come forward," she added.
