No criminal prosecution will be brought over the death of a "human cannonball" stuntman from the Isle of Man. Matthew Cranch died after being fired up to 40ft into the air at a daredevil show in front of hundreds of spectators in Kent.
A safety net intended to break the 23 year old's fall failed during Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show at the Kent County Showground in Detling in April last year.
A Kent police spokesman said: "The case has been referred to the local authority."
Witnesses estimated that Mr Cranch was launched between 30 and 40ft into the air by the cannon before falling head-first to his death.
Friends described him as a "loveable character" and a "true gent who had time for anyone and everyone". An inquest into his death has yet to be held.
The Isle of Man is celebrating Tynwald Day. The Manx Parliament will be held in open session on Tynwald Hill. All the new bills agreed over the past year will be read out, both in Manx and English so they can become law. Thousands of people from around the island are attending the ceremony.
The plane carrying the torch has just touched down at the Isle of Man airport. The relay will begin in Douglas at 10.25, before heading to Laxey, Onchan, Ballasalla and Castletown. More details to follow.
