Businessman died from head injury following altercation outside Screwfix DIY store


POLICE have confirmed Warrington businessman Andrew Webster died from a head injury following an altercation outside a Screwfix DIY store in the town.

A Home Office post mortem was carried out yesterday and concluded Mr Webster died following a head injury.
Police were called after 10am on Thursday 2 July following reports of an altercation between two men outside the Screwfix DIY on Gateway Trade Park, Kerfoot Street, Warrington.

Officers attended the scene and found 51-year-old Mr Webster had suffered serious injuries.
Eye witness reports suggested there had been an argument about “queue jumping.”
Mr Webster from Warrington was taken to hospital but sadly died. His family are being supported by specialist officers.
Mr Webster’s devastated wife Lisa, with whom he had an 11-year-old daughter, Ruby, has described him as the “gentlest of men” and a “true hero”, as his organs were donated so he could save lives.
Mrs Webster, 42, told Mirror Online: “He was a true hero, Andy was. He was the most amazing, strongest guy and our hearts are broken.”

As part of enquiries into the circumstances a 24-year-old man was arrested and has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.
Anyone with information can contact the Cheshire Police on 101 quoting IML-744483.
