Three people arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenager in a street fight have been released without charge.

Jack Gudge, 17, was found unconscious on Wimborne Road, Winton, in the early hours of 16 July and later died in hospital.

Two men aged 27 and 23, and a teenage boy aged 15, were all detained on suspicion of murder but will face no further action, Dorset Police said.

A 24-year-old man, from Bournemouth, remains on police bail until October.

A post-mortem examination revealed Jack sustained a brain injury but the exact cause of death was unclear.

Police have urged people to stop making threats on social media and Jack's family has urged people to stay calm.

Earlier this month hundreds of people attended a vigil near Jack's home in West Howe and released balloons into the sky in his memory.
