A murder investigation was launched after Mr Siddall, from Skellow, Doncaster, died at his home in the early hours of Friday after reportedly being assaulted at the VDKA bar the night before.

"The inquiry is in its very early stages and there are many more witnesses and lines of enquiry to pursue to ensure we establish the full facts about what happened to Mr Siddall.

"If you've not spoken to police yet, please call 101 quoting incident 22 of 14 August. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
