TWO teenage girls arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of an 81-year-old man have today been released without charge.

Widower Pat Marron was found dead at his home in Wisbech, Cambs, on Saturday and cops detained the pair, aged 14 and 16, over his “unexplained death”.

Neighbours desperately tried to resuscitate Mr Marron, known as Paddy, after he collapsed from a suspected heart attack.

Locals said he died in a hammer raid at home after being tormented by teenagers every night for six weeks.

However officers have today said a post-mortem examination has concluded the pensioner died from natural causes.

Cambridgeshire Police said no further action will be taken against the girls.

Earlier this week devastated neighbours told how “four or five” teens had congregated outside the grandad’s home “every night for six weeks”.

He was so concerned he even put up dummy security cameras and had a sign which said “Danger: loose dogs” in a desperate bid to stay safe.

One local, who asked not to be named, said: “It’s been going on since the beginning of the summer holidays.

“There’s four or five them on the corner every night.

“I saw two of them a couple of weeks ago with hammers and crowbars, threatening people up the road.

“They’ve been threatening other people – kids. They’re just f***ing wrong ‘uns.

“Paddy was a nice old boy and I think he’d had enough.”

Mr Marron, a retired road construction foreman, lived alone after losing his wife Ann, who died in 2016 aged 71.

Originally from Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan, in Ireland, he had lived on the same council estate for more than four decades.

A 12-year-old girl and a man of 20 were also arrested in connection with the incident and were released with no further action earlier this week, police said.

A file is being prepared for the coroner.
