No crimes were committed in relation to the tragic death of a Bridlington man, Humberside Police have concluded.

Robert Young, aged 61, died on October 6 last year after masonry dropped from the top of an amusements arcade in the town’s Cliff Street.

Fire crews and paramedics battled to save his life on a day which saw windy gusts peaking at 48mph. The 999 teams’ efforts were described as “brilliant” by witnesses who saw the incident.

Taxi driver Neil Dann, 52, was a lucky survivor after the back end of his vehicle was destroyed when the Nobles Amusements building partially collapsed.

A Humberside Police spokesperson confirmed that criminal offences were not found in relation to the incident.

The case has been passed on to East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s safety officials. They are now trying to determine if safety legislation breaches were behind Mr Young’s death.

Humberside Police said it would go on supporting the local authority’s safety investigation.
