Detective Superintendent Gareth Willis, who is Head of Major Crime, believes the "answers lie within the community".

He is appealing for anybody who saw or spoke with Damian or saw anything unusual or suspicious around Regent Street between Sunday morning and Tuesday to contact police.

Detective Superintendent Willis said: "We have a dedicated team of investigators working day and night to identify who is responsible for Damian’s death and bring them to justice.

“The CCTV from Aldi is the last confirmed sighting we have of Damian and some 48 hours later he was sadly found within his flat.
