Police in Bath are appealing for information after a student was found unconscious at a bus stop with head injuries and later died.

Alex Green, 22, an economics student at the University of Bath, was spotted by a group of five people on Westmoreland Road in the early hours of September 30th.

He was taken to Royal United Hospital and then onto Southmead Hospital, where he died three days later from internal head injuries.

Alex was on a night out with friends at The Second Bridge nightclub, but became separated and walked home alone.

CCTV images, recorded at 3:42am, show him walking along Westmoreland Road. But five minutes later he was discovered unconscious.

Police say there are three possibilities

  • Did Alex die as a result of a fall?
  • Was Alex assaulted prior to his death?
  • Was Alex involved in a road traffic collision?

Detective Inspector Dom Graham said, "we’re carrying out a thorough and extensive investigation into the tragic death of Alex Green, which is currently being treated as unexplained."

“Alex’s family have been devastated by his death and our thoughts and sympathies are with them. We’re doing all we can to support them and provide them with answers, but we need the public’s help."
