LONDON (Reuters) – A man has died after he was assaulted in a supermarket in southwest London, police said on Thursday.

The 57-year-old suffered a head injury during the incident at the Sainsburys store in Colliers Wood, Merton on Tuesday evening.

Media reports said the confrontation erupted after a row about queue-jumping.

He was taken to hospital in a critical condition and died late on Wednesday night.

Detectives had already charged Tony Virasami, 37, with causing grievous bodily harm and he is due to appear at Wimbledon magistrates court later on Thursday.

However a police spokesman said it was likely the matter would now be treated as a murder investigation.
