Two men, arrested in connection with the death of a man in Shaftesbury, have been released without charge.

On Tuesday, October 17 the ambulance service was called to an address in Lane Side following reports that a local man had suffered a cardiac arrest.

Sadly, the 46-year-old man died on Wednesday, October 25.  

Following enquiries by detectives, a 39-year-old Shaftesbury man was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, supplying a controlled class A drug and administering a poison with intent to endanger life/inflict grievous bodily harm.

A 38-year-old man, also from Shaftesbury, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a class A drug and perverting the course of justice. 

They have both now been released without charge.

A spokesman for Dorset Police said detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
