A suspect who died after being restrained during an armed robbery has been named as a father of two.

One man has since been questioned on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. When police arrived, they called an ambulance and Mr Bryant was taken to hospital, where he later died.

Officers were responding to reports that two men were threatening staff with a baseball bat and a golf club, and demanding cash at the store in Ashby, Leicestershire.

A 24-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of GBH has been released pending further inquires.

A Leicestershire Police spokesman said yesterday: 'One suspect made off in a vehicle which was waiting outside.

Detective Chief Inspector Di Coulson said: "We are keen to have any dashcam and mobile phone footage that anyone may have of the incident on Thursday night".

"There were lots of people in the area who saw what happened and were involved in apprehending Mr Bryant. He was like a brother to me, he always had my back and my friends" back for the whole 13 years I knew him'.

She has set up an online fundraising page to raise money "to give to his children and help support the family".

The Independent Police Complaints Commission has launched an investigation into Mr Bryant's death.
