West Yorkshire Police have launched a murder investigation after a man died in hospital after he was found with serious head injuries.
36 year old Jason Hall from Gipton died of his injuries at Leeds General Infirmary last night.
He was found by a dog walker at 5am on Wednesday morning near to the junction between Temple Newsam View and Temple Newsam Road in Leeds.
Police are particularly keen to trace Jason's movements on Tuesday night. He was known to have been in the Leodis public house on Green Lane, Halton around 9pm and was later caught on CCTV at the Tesco Express store on Selby Road at 10.25pm.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area around Temple Newsam View and Temple Newsam Road in the early hours of Wednesday morning."
