NO charges will be brought in connection with the death of a dad after a serious assault outside a Screwfix store.

Andrew Webster died aged 51 in July nearly a week after the incident at the branch on Gateway 49 Trade Park in Bewsey.

Warrington Guardian:

A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault before Mr Webster’s passing, before being released on bail pending further enquiries.

Cheshire Police had opened a ‘homicide’ investigation following his death.

But the Crown Prosecution Service has now confirmed that no charges will be brought against the man who was detained by police.

The CPS said that he claimed to have acted in self-defence, and that there was ‘insufficient evidence to dispute this version of events’.

District crown prosecutor Keith Drummond, of the CPS Merseyside and Cheshire, said: “Having considered all the evidence, we concluded the legal test for a prosecution was not met.

"The suspect claimed self-defence and that appropriate force was used, and there was insufficient evidence to dispute this version of events.

"We know this is upsetting for the family and have written them to explain our decision in full.”

Builder Mr Webster was rushed to Aintree Hospital after the incident on Kerfoot Street at around 10am on Thursday, July 2, with an air ambulance having attended the scene.

The biker is believed to have confronted another customer who jumped a queue, then fell and hit his head on the floor after being punched outside the store.

He was in a critical condition for nearly a week, but died as a result of a head injury on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 8.
