The family of a grandfather, murdered after a night out, say he was a "doting" loved one.

Ronald Hayes, 63, was attacked as he left the Liverpool Arms bar in Chester on Saturday. He was taken to hospital and placed on a life support machine. It was switched off yesterday.

Police believe his killers were in the same bar. Two people were arrested, questioned and bailed.

Ronald's family say: "Those closest to Ronald describe him as a doting partner, father and grandfather whose spirit and energy was infectious. He had a drive for life that outweighed his years. We are all deeply saddened."
