MYSTERY surrounds the death of a man who was found unconscious in west Reading.

The 55-year-old was found with serious head injuries in a property on Prince of Wales Avenue in the early hours of Sunday, May 7.

The man was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital where he died on Tuesday.

Detectives launched an appeal to trace a mysterious woman seen nearby at 2.30am but have now successfully traced her.

A post-mortem examination carried out yesterday, Wednesday, May 10, found no clear reason for his death.

Investigators say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death but are continuing to investigate ahead of passing a file to the coroner.
