“While a post mortem examination is yet to take place, I can now confirm that we are treating this incident as a murder inquiry.
“Ryelands Street was cordoned off last night so we could carry out our inquiries in and around the scene. I'd like to apologise to the local community for any disruption and inconvenience caused by the police activity.
“I’d also like to thank people for their co-operation and would appeal to anyone who knows anything at all about the incident, or who may have been in the area yesterday afternoon and saw or heard any suspicious activity, to contact us.”
