A MAN has died following an incident outside a pub in South Gloucestershire, police have said. 

Emergency services attended the scene in the car park of The Kings Arms in Pilning early on Saturday morning, March 2 following reports of an assault. 

Avon and Somerset Police say 46-year-old Scott Hendy was taken to Southmead Hospital with a suspected head injury. 

He tragically died in hospital yesterday, Sunday March 3. 

A police spokesperson said: "Sadly the 46-year-old died in hospital yesterday. His next of kin are aware.

"Our thoughts are with them and they are receiving specialist support from family liaison officers.

"A forensic post-mortem examination will be conducted."
