Two men who were arrested following the death of an off-duty prison officer will face no further police action.

Nick Medlin, 57, died at the scene outside the Rose Inn pub in Pier Street, Ventnor, on the Isle of Wight early on Christmas Day.

Two men, aged 31 and 26, had been bailed after being held on suspicion of murder at the end of December.

Michael Hudson, 32, of no fixed address, is due to go on trial charged with manslaughter in June.

Mr Medlin, a father of two from Ventnor, worked at HMP Parkhurst and played bass in a punk band called Manufactured Romance.
