Teenage girls arrested on suspicion of murder following incident in Wisbech in which a man in his 80s died

Floral tributes have been left outside the home of a Wisbech man who died following an incident at his home on Saturday.

Two teenage girls have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the incident in which the man in 80s died.

It is believed the victim, who has been named locally as Patrick Marron, confronted people in his home on Saturday afternoon.

Floral tributes have been left outside the semi-detached property, which stands on the corner of Edinburgh Drive and Acacia Avenue, and the house and its neighbour remain cordoned off.

One tribute read: “RIP Pat will be missed” while another said: “RIP bless you I’ll miss our little chats.”

The Citizen has been told a hammer was used in the incident but a police spokesman, could not confirm this, said: “We were called at about 5pm on Saturday (September 28) by the ambulance service with reports of a man in a cardiac arrest in Edinburgh Drive, Wisbech.

“The man, in his 80s, sadly passed away at the scene.At this stage the death is being treated as unexplained.

“Three girls aged 12, 14 and 16 and a 20-year-old man were arrested in connection with the incident. Two girls aged 14 and 16 have been bailed until October 25. The 12-year-old girl and the man have been released with no further action.”

A post mortem is due to take place tomorrow (Wednesday), when it is also expected the man will be officially named.
