Detective Chief Inspector Edward Foster said: "Clearly we are at an early stage of the inquiry but we understand there was a fight inside the address that has led to a man suffering fatal injuries.

"We have identified some significant witnesses and are conducting quick-time inquiries - but we are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and heard a disturbance or perhaps someone running from the scene."
