Police have charged a 15-year-old boy with manslaughter following the death of a man who was attacked after leaving a Hampshire supermarket.

Peter Ramsey, 40, died at Southampton General Hospital on Friday, three days after being set upon near Tesco Express in the Millbrook area of Southampton.

Mr Ramsey, a Canadian, of Green Park Road, was assaulted while walking home with his girlfriend.

Four boys and a girl aged 13 to 15 have been released on police bail.

Mr Rasmey, an artist, managed to return home but later collapsed.

He underwent emergency surgery for a head wound at Southampton General Hospital but died from his injuries on Friday.

He leaves two children from a previous marriage, who both live in Canada. His mother and extended family live in Hampshire.

The teenager, who has not been named, will appear at Southampton Youth Court on Monday, a Hampshire Police spokeswoman said.
