A murder investigation has been launched after a 35-year-old man died following an 'altercation' in Hull.

Police were called to Lee Street on Tuesday evening following an incident involving two men police say were known to one another.

The victim, Kabelo Sam Mokoena, was taken to hospital but died yesterday afternoon. A post mortem examination is due to take place in the next few days to establish the cause of death.

A 58-year-old man was arrested before being released on bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Cockerill, from the Major Crime Team, said: “I would like to express my sympathy to Kabelo’s family at this sad time. We have specially trained officers actively supporting them as part of the wider investigation and keeping them informed of developments.

"My team are speaking to residents in the area to establish the full circumstances that led to Kabelo sustaining his injuries, whilst also providing community reassurance. I would urge anyone with information that is pertinent to the investigation to get in touch and support us with our enquiries."
