A 65-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter following the incident at an Asda supermarket car park in Biggleswade, Beds, on Saturday.

The victim, from Sandy, was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, where he died on Saturday afternoon, a spokesman for Bedfordshire Police said. The family of the victim, who was aged 64, were at his bedside.

Det Chief Insp Tim Redfearn, who is leading the investigation, said: “The men were waiting in the disabled parking area at the time and got into a disagreement about parking.

“We know they became involved in a disagreement which resulted in one man punching the other knocking him to the ground.

“It would seem an argument over nothing has led to tragic and devastating consequences.”
