Shortly after 10.15pm on Saturday 15 November 2014, police were called to Netherbury Close to reports of men fighting.

When officers attended they found a 20-year-old man with serious injuries. He was taken to the MRI where he sadly died in the early hours of this morning.

It is believed the victim was involved in an altercation with two men described as black or mixed race, in their late teens to early 20s, of slim build with short afro hair.

Officers have now launched a murder investigation.

A post mortem examination will take place later today to establish the cause of death.

Detective Superintendent Andy Peach said, “We are in the early stages of our enquiries and working to build up a picture of the events leading up to this young mans death.

“Early enquiries suggest there had been some kind of fight between the victim and the men who were seen to flee from the scene in a silver car.

“I understand people will be concerned when they hear news of what has happened, but I would like to reassure them if I can that we have a team of experienced detectives dedicated to identifying those responsible.

“We are appealing for the publics help and are asking for any witnesses to come forward, were you in the area and witnessed the fight, the incident happened outside on a residential street.  Did you see a silver car leaving the scene at speed or other cars parked up on the street.

“You may think that what you saw is only trivial, but it could be vital to our investigation, so please get in touch.”
