In May, Worcester City Council did not confirm if the report will be released to the public, but believed the event was conducted "in line with the venue's licence."

A Worcester City Council spokesman said at the time: “This tragic incident was reported to Worcestershire Regulatory Services and an investigation is being carried out into all aspects of the event.

"The police are also aware. We can confirm that the charity boxing event was conducted in line with the venue’s licence.”
