We were first called at around 5.50pm to reports of a serious assault at the junction of Ashley Road and City Road.

On arrival a man was found in critical condition after suffering injuries in a serious assault. The air ambulance and paramedics attended but sadly the man was pronounced dead just before 6.30pm.

A man in his 20s was initially arrested near the scene on Friday evening but released on Saturday with no further action to be taken.
