A POST mortem examination is due to be held this afternoon on the body of Jimmy Cash.

Mr Cash, aged in his 50s, died following an ‘altercation’ at The Denes in Bennetts End, Hemel Hempstead.

Police cordoned off the parade of shops after being called just after 1.30pm on Thursday following reports of a fight in a fish and chip shop.

Officers have quashed rumours circulating on social networking sites that the death was the result of a stabbing or shooting.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police immediately on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
