The family of a 24-year-old man who was stabbed to death in Wigan has paid tribute to him.
Ian Sudworth, from Beech Hill, was found unconscious on Scot Lane shortly after 04:05 GMT on Saturday.
He was taken to Wigan Royal Infirmary where he was confirmed dead a short time later.
A 21-year-old man, arrested on Saturday on suspicion of murder, remains in police custody. A woman and a man have been released without charge.
In a statement, Mr Sudworth's parents said: "Ian, you always looked for the silver lining to every cloud.
"We are having to struggle to find this one all by ourselves. Miss you and love you always."

Police said an argument had broken out between a group of people shortly before the stabbing.
They have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
