Detective Superintendent Joanne Rawlinson said:
"At this stage we are working to establish the full circumstances that led to this man sadly losing his life.

"We have cordoned off the street while we carry out our investigations and we will have an increased police presence in the area over the coming days. We would urge anyone with information or any concerns to speak to us."
