Officers said Mr Jackson lived alone and they are building up a picture of his lifestyle, his routine and who he had contact with.

Forensic experts and crime scene investigators have examined Damian’s flat and detectives have examined CCTV footage from the surrounding area.

They have spoken to neighbours about sightings of Damian and any suspicious activity they might have seen in the area around the time of his death.
