An inquest into the death of a man who died in the doorway of a One Stop shop in Cambridge continues for the second day today (Thursday).

Clive Beeson, 46, of Dudley Road, Abbey, died at the store in Ditton Lane after an altercation near his home involving a man and a dog in December 15, 2014.

Police said Mr Beeson had been involved in an altercation with a 45-year-old man in Dudley Road, during which he bit the animal, believed to be a Staffordshire bull terrier.

The 45-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and then released without charge.

Four men, three from Cambridge aged 40, 44 and 69, and a 50-year-old man from Fenstanton, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and then later released on bail.

On the first day of Mr Beeson's inquest at Peterborough Town Hall, medical evidence said he died from "traumatic asphyxia during restraint whilst in an agitated state".

CCTV footage from the day of Mr Beeson's death was also played to the inquest.

Following his death, Mr Beeson's family described him as a "much loved son of Grace and Jim, loving father of Samantha and brother of Alan".
