A homeless man who was left in critical condition after being severely injured last month has died in hospital.

Howard Black, 48, was found on July 30 after sustaining serious head injuries and was taken to St Mary’s hospital.

He died on Friday (14) in hospital after remaining in critical condition since the incident.

Police believe no one else was involved and the man is likely to have sustained his injuries as a result of a fall.

However investigations are still on-going and a spokesperson for the police said they were not ruling anything out.
