POLICE have named a man who died in unexplained circumstances on Monday.

It is still unclear how Terry Birkenshaw, 42, from Stone Close Avenue, Hexthorpe, died after a post mortem examination was inconclusive.

The 37-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released with no further action on this offence, however he was re-arrested on suspicion of assault.

Mr Birkenshaw’s death is still being investigated but is now being treated as “unexplained” rather than suspicious.

Officers are awaiting further test results.
