Chris Findley West Midlands Police said PC Chris Findley had become involved in a "scuffle" outside the club

A man has been charged with manslaughter after an off-duty police officer died following a "scuffle" outside a Wolverhampton nightclub.

PC Chris Findley, 33, suffered severe head injuries outside Divine Bar, on Darlington Street, at about 04:30 GMT on 28 January.

He was left unconscious in the road and died in hospital, 10 days later.

An 18-year-old from Bilston has been bailed to appear before magistrates in Wolverhampton on 27 March.

Police said a 20-year-old woman had been cautioned for assault, while a second woman had been released without charge.

Colleagues described him as a "selfless and humble man," who spent most of his time working with the neighbourhood police team in Smethwick.
