A man has been arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter in connection with a corporate manslaughter enquiry following the death of a man earlier this month.
Police were called shortly after 1pm on Thursday 16 March by the East Midlands Ambulance Service to the leisure centre in Cossington Street, Leicester.
It was reported that a 23-year-old man had taken ill in the swimming pool. Officers attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Following the execution of two warrants at two addresses in the city yesterday (Thursday), a 25-year-old man, of Leicester, was arrested in connection with the inquiry. He has subsequently been released on bail while enquiries continue.
A second man, aged 25, from Leicester, was also voluntarily interviewed.
Earlier this month, a 40-year-old man, of Leicester, was arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter in connection with the incident. He has since been released on police bail.
All of those arrested and interviewed as part of the investigation so far are not connected to the leisure centre.
Detective Chief Inspector Nicole Main said: “Our investigation is continuing to establish the full circumstances of the man’s death and we continue to provide full support to his family as our enquiries remain ongoing.”
