The family of a man who died after being restrained by bouncers outside a bar in London are offering a £1,000 for any footage of the incident.
Adam Hird, from Epping, collapsed outside Club No.65, in Vauxhall, in the early hours of 15 June and died two days later in hospital.
Police were called to reports that he was being restrained by security staff at 3.20am and officers found him collapsed when they arrived.
Further tests are being carried out after a post-mortem in June was inconclusive.
Mr Hird, a travel agent, was engaged at the time of his death and was hoping to become a commercial pilot.
His family released a statement saying the 30-year-old was “full of life, kind, gentle and funny”.
It continued: “He loved traveling and new experiences and had visited some of the most far flung and often dangerous countries around the world and we often worried about him when he was away.
“We never imagined that this could happen, right here, so close to where we live, where he should have been safe. We are deeply shocked and distraught at what has happened to Adam.”
