Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Stuart Bosley, said: “Our investigation into this tragic incident has been ongoing for several months, and we are now in a position to confirm that we are no longer treating this as a murder investigation.

“Our thoughts remain with Mr de Sousa’s family, and the case has now been passed to the coroner for a full inquest into the circumstances.

“I would like to pass on my thanks to all those who came forward with information during this investigation, and would also like to pay tribute to Mr de Sousa’s family and friends for their dignity and understanding while this was ongoing.”
