A spokesman said: "Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, the man sadly died in hospital last night."

This morning, police made two arrests in connection with the tragic incident.

A 42-year-old man and 53-year-old man, both from Southampton, have been arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter.

They remain in custody at this time, being questioned by police.

These arrests take the total tally up to three.

The first came on Sunday, when a 23-year-old man from Southampton was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious injury by careless driving and driving a vehicle whilst unfit through drugs.

He has been released on bail until April 21, as police continue to investigate.

The incident led to the car wash being cordoned off - and the area was swarming with police on Sunday, with crime scene investigators gathering evidence.

Police continue to appeal for witnesses to come forward.
