A man whose penis was severed during an assault has been found dead over a year after the attack.

His body was discovered at an address in King George's Terrace, South Bank, Teesside, on Thursday.

The 40-year-old was found "in a distressed state" on the A66 in Middlesbrough in the early hours of 13 March 2014 with groin wounds.

Cleveland Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious and a post-mortem examination would take place.

A 22-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault remains on police bail.

The victim was put into an induced coma following the attack and later released from hospital.
