Neighbours said the pensioner was attacked during a dispute over parking and cars blocking driveways on the road amid ongoing building work.

Residents reported hearing "kids screaming in terror" during the mass brawl which erupted on the residential street during rush hour.

It is believed the victim, who has not yet been identified, died after suffering a heart attack.

A force spokesperson said: "This brings the total number of people currently held in custody to eight.

"All of the suspects live in Exhall and this is being treated as an isolated event with no further threat to the public."

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Belcher said previously: “A full investigation is underway to establish the cause and circumstances that led to this loss of life.

"At this time it is believed that all the people involved in the disturbance were known to each other."
