Despite the investigation “moving at pace” Metropolitan Police (Met) detectives have yet to arrest anyone in connection to the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Howie, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Our investigation is moving at pace and we have been carrying out a number of enquiries, including a review of CCTV from the area and a forensic examination of the scene.

“We now believe Adrian was involved in an altercation which started near to the Cubana Restaurant before moving down Lower Marsh Street.

“I am sure that there were people who witnessed what happened who haven’t yet spoken to us about what they saw.”
