A man allegedly bit a dog before going into a shop where he was later found dead.

The body of the man, in his 40s, was found just after 06:30 GMT on Monday at the One-Stop convenience store in Ditton Lane, Cambridge.

Police confirmed he had allegedly been involved in an "altercation with a man and his dog" earlier. They were told the man had bitten the animal.

Four men arrested on suspicion of manslaughter have been bailed.

A police spokesman said the man had been involved in an "alleged altercation" with a 45-year-old man and his dog.

A man, aged 45, initially arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm was released without further action on Tuesday.
