A man has been arrested following the death of a man who was pulled unresponsive from a swimming pool during a party at a house in Radlett.
A 34-year-old man from Brighton has been arrested in connection with the death. He has been released on bail, with conditions, until Friday, June 17.
Police were called by the ambulance service at 4.53am on Sunday (May 22) to a house in Theobald Street. A man had been taken out of a swimming pool unresponsive and he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
The family of the man, who was aged in his twenties, is being supported by specially trained officers.
The Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit are investigating the circumstances of his death and officers are appealing for information and witnesses.
Detective Inspector Iain MacPherson, from the BCH Major Crime Unit, said: “Firstly my thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this very difficult time.
“We are trying to piece together what happened and I would like to appeal for the public’s help. There was a party happening in the house at the time and although we’ve spoken to a number of attendees, we believe there are others who left the party early but could still have information that will help our investigation.
“Please get in touch if you think you might be able to help. The man’s family need to understand what happened.”
