A man has died after he was restrained outside a bar in south London by security guards, police have said.

Adam Hird, 30, from Epping, was stopped at the entrance of the No.65 bar on Albert Embankment in Vauxhall, in the early hours of 15 June.

Officers, called at about 03:20 BST, found him collapsed on arrival. Mr Hird was taken to a hospital where he died on Tuesday afternoon.

Four men, aged 21, 22, 29 and 50, have been arrested as part of the inquiry.

The Met said it is treating the death as "suspicious".

Police have appealed for information. Officers will return to the scene at Vauxhall on Saturday to ask potential witnesses to come forward.
