The ongoing investigations into the death of a young boxer has seen one offence withdrawn concerning the fight's license.

A prosecution against Colin Abbott, 53, of The Esplanade, Scratby, had been set for Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court on behalf of the borough council.

This stated that on November 19, 2016 Mr Abbott had knowingly allowed a boxing event to take place at the Atlantis Tower Complex, otherwise than under and in accordance with an authorisation issued under the Licensing Act of 2003.

It was at this event Kuba Moczyk, 22, was hospitalised, before dying in hospital days later. However, the hearing did not take place, with the offence withdrawn.

A council spokesman said: 'Given that this is part of an on-going investigation it would be inappropriate to comment other than to say that the issue of proceedings under the Licensing Act 2003 are being kept under review.'
