A spokesperson for Greene King, which runs the pub, said: “Our thoughts go out to the victim’s family and friends at this tragic time.

"This is a deeply upsetting incident and we are doing all we can to assist the police’s investigation into this matter.

"We have provided them with CCTV footage from the night and the pub remains closed while the investigation continues.”

Mr Davies was assaulted in a 'pointless attack' while on a night out with friends shortly before midnight, police said.

Paramedics attended the scene and he was transferred to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, where he died at about 7.40pm on Sunday.

A 22-year-old man from Northampton was arrested this morning while a 28-year-old man was released on conditional bail yesterday after being arrested on Sunday.

Detective Chief Inspector Joe Banfield said: “My officers are working flat out to bring this case to a successful conclusion but we need the public’s help and once again I am appealing for anybody with any information, however insignificant it may seem, to get in touch.

"It may just be the missing piece of the jigsaw we need in order to gain justice for Glenn and his family."
