Dawid Kurdziel died on July 3

Seven people have so far been arrested after Dawid Kurdziel was found in Holyhead Road.

Police believe Mr Kurdziel, of Polish extraction, was stabbed near to the park and children's play area next to Millennium Village, off Ketley Road, and made his way to the main road where he was found.

In a tribute, his family said: “Dawid was a great brother, son, uncle and friend. He was a very happy person, always smiling, and that's how he will be remembered.

“He would do anything to keep family and friends from harm's way. He was precious to us all. He is badly missed and loved deeply.

“Dawid - forever in our hearts.”

A fundraising appeal in tribute to Mr Kurdziel has raised more then £10,000.
