A man from Lithuania who died after being found lying in a main road in Swansea was 'a much-loved brother, son, uncle and friend.' The family of Gintaras Zelanius, who was 35, says he was 'a talented and creative person and used music to express himself. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.'

He moved to the UK in 2006 from his native Lithuania, and has travelled widely here. His musical interest also extended to playing drums and guitar in a band in Swansea.

He was found on Dyfatty Street in the city at around 5.30 in the morning of Sunday 30 December. A 68-year-old woman was arrested in connection with the incident. She has now been released on bail. Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
