LONDON, England - Two men in the sixties literally fought to the death on Saturday (August 3 2013), apparently over the right to a "disabled parking" slot.

A 64-year-old and a 65-year-old came to blows outside a supermarket, the Daily Mail reported, and the "younger" died after being punched and striking his head on the ground.

The man was treated for serious head injuries at Addenbrooke's Hospital's critical care unit in Cambridge but later succumbed to his injuries.

'ONE MAN PUNCHING THE OTHER'

The 65-year-old man was arrested at his home, taken to a police station and re-arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

Police appealed to the public for witnesses to the altercation.

The Mail reported the police as saying: "We know they became involved in a disagreement which resulted in one man punching the other and knocking him to the ground.

"The supermarket car park would have been very busy on a Saturday afternoon."
