The emergency services were called at around 2.30pm to reports of a fight involving a group of young men.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detective Inspector Nick Barnes said:

We understand a group of around six or seven young men were fighting in rear gardens off Franklin Grove when one suffered the fatal stab wound. Moments earlier they were seen running across Tile Hill Lane. I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time and saw what happened, or people making off from the scene, to get in touch as they may have seen something important.

– Detective Inspector Nick Barnes

A cordon remains in place at the scene and police are appealing for any information.

A post-mortem examination will take place tomorrow (14 June).
