Police have bailed four men they arrested over the death of a local man in Newquay.

49 year old Michael Kearns was found unconscious at Sailors nightclub in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Having originally declared it a murder inquiry, a spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall police said they had changed their minds following, "an assessment of the circumstances."

Detectives are now trawling through CCTV footage from the club trying to get a sense of what happened to the man on a night out with his friends.

A police spokesperson said: "Police were called in the early hours of Saturday 27th April to an incident at The Sailors nightclub in Newquay.

"There officers found a 49 year old local male, unconcious and not breathing.
 
"Police officers and members of staff from the nightclub carried out CPR on the male until the Ambulance arrived.
 
"The male was taken to Treliske hospital but was unfortunately pronounced dead on arrival.
 
Rumours that the man had been stabbed have been dismissed by police, but the real cause of death is not known.

Inspector Dave Meredith said: "We are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident. I would like to reassure the public that the police are treating this death as an isolated incident.

"The management and staff of Sailors nightclub are cooperating fully with the police investigation."

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference GN/13/782.
