Emma Barker has now set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for Glenn Davies' funeral costs - and (at the time of writing) £357 has been raised.

Emma said: "On 24th of August a lovely, young caring gentleman’s life was unfortunately taken.

"Glenn was the life of the party always smiling, laughing and cracking the jokes there was never a time he would not check up on his loved ones, this was a shock to everyone but especially to his mother, father and his sister.

"So, I have set [up] this funded page to help the family out and give Glenn the best send of he deserves. Anything makes a huge difference for Glenn's grieving family."

Bunches of flowers have since been left at the scene where Mr Davies was assaulted and a police cordon was still in place yesterday evening (Monday).
