Yesterday Mr Momodu's family paid tribute to him in a statement, which read: "We are all devastated at the loss of my son Tamba Momodu who was in a tragic incident that occurred on the 13th October 2020.

"We knew Tamba as Tee or Kutubu, a smiley charismatic young man who would light up any room he entered.

"He was a big part of our lives and was massively loved by all who knew him, it is hard for us to come to terms with what has happened and at this time we as a family respectfully request privacy.

Detectives are continuing to appeal for information over Mr Momodu's murder.
