A man on his way to a WWII re-enactment evening has died after being pinned to the floor by customers in a Plymouth bookmakers.
The 86 year old Normandy Landing veteran had stopped off at Ladbrookes in the city centre to collect his winnings after scooping over £125,000 on a £2 accumulator
But regulars at the bookmakers in Crownhill Road thought the man was out to steal the days takings and restrained him until police arrived.
Paramedics tried to resuscitate the man on the way to Plymouth General Hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival. The exact cause of death is unknown but the manager of the betting shop said Ladbrookes were offering
6/1 heart attack
1500/1 alien autopsy
Ladbrookes offering 100/1
