HAMPSHIRE police say no further action will be taken against a man who was arrested on suspicion of murder last summer.

The 34-year-old was detained after Xiu Bin Wang, 33, died at the China Chef restaurant in Brookley Road, Brockenhurst, on August 20.

Last week a police spokesman said the man's bail had been extended until July 3.

But Hampshire Constabulary has today announced that no further action will be taken against him.

In a statement the force said: "The man, who is from Bournemouth, had been on bail following the death of Xiu Bin Wang, who was living at the China Chef restaurant.

"Police were called on the afternoon of Monday, August 20 2018, to reports of a man in need of medical assistance at an address on Brookley Road. He subsequently died at the scene.

"The post-mortem examination concluded he died as a result of a head injury."

Police say the decision to take no further action against the man was made by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

A CPS spokesperson said: "Following a careful review of all the available evidence provided to us by the police we decided there was insufficent evidence to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Wang had been unlawfully killed.

"Mr Wang died of a head injury but it could not be proved how, when and in what circumstances that injury had been caused.

"We therefore advised the police that no further action should be taken.

"The decision was made in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors."
