Andre Yan Irwin was found injured in Coleshill Terrace and died a short time afterwards in hospital.

We are devastated at the sudden and tragic loss of a brilliant father, son, grandfather and fiancé.

Andre was a great role model for his grandchildren, and will be very sadly missed.

We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and support following this tragedy, but would appreciate privacy and time to grieve our loss.

Police said they are now treating this as a murder investigation.

A 42-year-old was arrested at the scene and is currently in custody.

Our thoughts are with the family of Mr Irwin, who we are supporting at this sad time.

We would still like to hear from anyone who has any information about what happened in Coleshill Terrace in order to build a full picture of events, and I would like to reassure that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.
