Cordons in the area have been lifted and police have described a man they want to trace.

A homicide investigation has been launched, led by Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn, Specialist Crime.

DCI Blackburn said: “Our investigation is making significant progress, but I am continuing to appeal for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. I also want to hear from anyone who may have footage that will assist the investigation.

“We are also keen to speak to a man described as black, of short build, who was wearing a blue hooded top and a blue Covid mask. He ran away from the scene along Christchurch Road.

"I particularly want to hear from anyone who may have seen this man, or who has footage of him. Of course, he may have discarded the mask shortly after the incident.”
