Police identify Worcester taxi death father

A man who died during a taxi journey has been named by police.

Simon Ordidge, a father of two, was with a friend travelling from Worcester city centre when he was injured at Northwick Road last Wednesday.

He died in hospital two days later. Police are treating the incident as a road traffic collision but have not released any more details.

A man has been arrested in connection with the 32-year-old's death. A post-mortem examination is due later.

The man arrested was released on police bail on Saturday, a spokesman said.

Mr Ordidge, from Worcester, was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital after the incident at about midnight on 9 June.

He was later transferred to Walsgrave Hospital in Coventry where he died.
