The death of a Burnley man is "no longer being treated as a criminal inquiry" by police following an investigation.

Officers were called to an address in Harley Street on March 2 where Paul Inskip was found with serious injuries.

He was taken to hospital but died a week later on March 9.

A post-mortem examination showed 55-year-old Paul died from a head injury.

A police spokesperson said: "Following thorough enquiries, we have now concluded the police investigation and Paul's death is no longer being treated as a criminal inquiry.

"A file will be passed to HM Coroner and the matter will proceed to inquest.

"Our thoughts remain with Paul's loved ones at this time."

A date for the inquest is yet to be set.

At the time of the post-mortem examination, DCI Tracey McMurdo, of the force major investigation team, said: “My thoughts remain with Mr Inskip’s loved ones at this time.

"While we still don’t know how Paul came by his injury, we are doing all we can to try and establish this so we can give them some answers."

At the same time, three arrests were made - a woman in her 40s and two men in their 30s – on suspicion of assault.
