Humberside Police are continuing to make inquiries into the death of Bridlington man Dominic Elliott, who died this weekend.

Police have now formally identified the 23-year-old, who died after leaving David Hockney’s house in Bridlington in the early hours of the Sunday morning.

A Home Office post mortem examination is due to take place this afternoon (Tuesday March 19) at Hull Royal Infirmary and is not expected to be concluded until early this evening.

Whilst police hope this may provide some clues as to the cause of Mr Elliott’s death, results from post mortem examinations are not always conclusive and it may then take several more weeks for complete results to be available to provide a pathologist with the information required to identify any cause.

Meanwhile, Humberside Police continue to treat Mr Elliott’s death as unexplained.

Officers will continue to make routine inquiries into the events leading up to the arrival of the deceased at hospital and his subsequent death which includes talking to friends, family, neighbours, colleagues and other associates who may be able to assist.
