The body of Mark Reissing, from Wallasey, was found on Tuesday on Egremont Promenade in New Brighton.

A post-mortem examination found he died as a result of multiple injuries.

His family said:

"Sometime between Monday 8 July and Tuesday 9 July our brother Mark was brutally murdered. He was then callously dumped in a side alley near to Egremont Promenade, where he died of his injuries.

Nobody's dad, son, brother or uncle deserves such a horrific death. If anyone has any information, no matter how trivial it may seem, please contact Merseyside Police to help apprehend the perpetrator or perpetrators."
