Detective Inspector Mark Bell, of the Major Investigation Team, said: "We are in the process of piecing together what has happened to this young man.

"Given his injuries we know he has been attacked but at this stage, we don't know why.

"I am appealing to people who live in the area, particularly the high rise flats, to contact us with any information they may have.

"It's possible someone heard or saw a disturbance and the information could prove vital in assisting our inquiries in tracing whoever is responsible for this young man's death.''
