The officer leading an investigation into the death of a man in Scarborough has asked anyone who saw four men in the area on Wednesday evening.
"If you were in the Eastborough area between 9.30pm and midnight on Wednesday 7 August, I urge you to come forward and contact Scarborough CID straight away as you may have vital information that could help our enquiries.
“I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a group of four men as they left the scene, one of who was wearing a pair of light coloured tracksuit bottoms. It is possible that they dispersed and made their way individually towards Queen’s Terrace, between 11.30pm and 11.45pm."
