The IPCC is interviewing witnesses and CCTV has been secured.
“This decision has been made due to significantly higher than anticipated additional costs of more than £130,000 associated with counter-terrorism measures and medical cover for the air show.
“Mr Reynolds, 38, of Colchester, was arrested but on his way to custody, Suffolk Police officers became concerned for his wellbeing and contacted an ambulance.
He was taken to hospital but later died.” The IPCC launched an independent investigation into the contact between Mr Reynolds and police after Suffolk Police referred the incident to the Commission.
