The family of a man stabbed to death in Worcester last week have paid tribute to their ‘loveable rogue'.
On Wednesday evening (2 January), 39-year-old Adrian Locke was found with stab wounds in the Tolladine area of the city. He was confirmed dead at the scene.
His mother Lilly says:
Adie has sometimes been on the wrong side of the law, but he was a loveable rogue.
His family was his life and he was a brilliant uncle to his nieces and nephews, who idolised him. He was always generous and couldn't do enough for them.
He was a big kid himself and a real joker who was always teasing the kids with all sorts of tricks.
Anyone with information should contact West Mercia Police.
