Two men arrested after holidaymaker dies of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning month before gas leak at Morecambe hotel
Two men have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after a holidaymaker died of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning at a hotel in Morecambe.
They were held after an incident on Boxing Day last year where five people were taken to hospital following a suspected gas leak at the Royal Hotel, Marine Road Central, Morecambe.
All those affected on that occasion were discharged but police enquiries established that in November last year a 66-year-old man had died at the hotel.
Tests showed Graham Holden had a high level of carbon monoxide in his blood.
