A man in his twenties has died after police used a stun gun to arrest him in Cumbria.

Officers were called to Hartington Street, in Barrow on Tuesday evening after reports of a man causing a disturbance.

When the man was arrested, a Taser was deployed. The man later complained of feeling unwell and he then died in hospital.

"The man became unwell following the arrest and was taken to Furness general hospital by officers.

"At around 9pm the man, who was in his 20s and lived locally, was pronounced dead."
