Detectives have begun a murder inquiry after a 29-year-old man who was injured in a fight outside a Mansfield nightclub, died in hospital.

Mark Davie from the Berry Hill area of the town, died in the Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, on Saturday.

He suffered head injuries outside the And Why Not bar on Leeming Street.

Craig Lowde, 31, of Dormy Close, Mansfield Woodhouse, has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent and was bailed by magistrates.

Two other men, aged 24 and 31, from the Mansfield Woodhouse area were earlier arrested in connection with the incident and released on police bail.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Det Insp Kate Meynell urged anyone who was in the area at the time or at the Late Lounge club above the bar on 7 May to come forward.

"There were a lot of people around at the time of the incident, and we need to speak to those people.

"Similarly, a bus full of people going home went past the scene at the time - we want to talk to the people on that bus in case they saw anything.

"It is essential that we establish exactly what happened that night, and any information could be vital to the investigation," she said.
