He died suddenly yesterday, with four men arrested on suspicion of his murder.

A post-mortem examination has yet to be carried out, the force added, with Mr Marx's death being treated as 'unexplained'.

His friends have paid tribute to him, saying he was 'always smiling'.

An ambulance was called to Staining Road in Normoss, where the fight happened, at 12.16am on Saturday, but was cancelled, a service spokeswoman said.

Police were called at 12.25am.
