Police have linked the death of man found collapsed in Teddington with an incident that took place outside a pub.

The 20-year-old victim was taken to hospital in a critical condition after he was found in Field Lane at about 0.30am on Sunday.

Officers believe they know his identity of the man, who was from Twickenham, but await formal identification and all next of kin to be told.

A post mortem examination is due to take place at Kingston hospital mortuary today (12 November).

Two men, both aged 20, were arrested near to the scene on suspicion of assault and taken to a west London police station. They were bailed to return on a date in mid December pending further enquiries.

A 21-year-old man was arrested at a residential address in Richmond later that day. He remains in custody at a west London police station.

The earlier incident took place in Teddington High Street at 9.50pm on Saturday near to the Royal Oak pub.

As a result, one man is currently hospital in a serious but stable condition while another sustained minor injuries and was discharged following treatment.

There have been no arrests in connection with this incident at this stage.

Anyone with information should contact 020 8721 4155 or to remain anonymous Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
