Two men have been charged with his murder and a man and woman have been charged with conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

Mr Moss's family thanked people in the community for their support in a statement issued through police.

"Michael was a loving father and son, who loved all his children and grandchildren," the statement said.

Detectives have produced an appeal leaflet which they will be distributing in the community this week.

Officers want to speak to anyone who saw two white men leaving Mr Moss's house around the time of the incident, which happened at about 21:00 GMT.

They are also asking people to contact them if they saw a silver vehicle in the area on the night of the murder.

The two men were seen getting into the vehicle and driving off.
