Police have named the dead man as Gheorghe Agiurgioaei, a 47-year-old Romanian national who lived in Trinity Church Square.

An ambulance was called at approximately 5pm on Bank Holiday Monday 31 May to reports of a man who had collapsed on Cole Street.

On arrival paramedics found a man suffering head injuries and he was transferred to St Thomas' Hospital where he died on Wednesday 2 June.
