A man has been charged with the murder of a 60-year-old man in Newport.

Jerzy Dubiniec, a Polish baker visiting the UK, was found on Broad Street, Pill, in the early hours of Saturday, 20 August.

His son described him as a "loving, patient and caring man" who had come to Newport to pass on his skills to a local bakery.

A 25-year-old man charged with murder will appear before Caerphilly magistrates on Wednesday.

A 21-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man arrested over suspected driving offences have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

They had been questioned on suspicion of causing death by driving without due care and attention and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Three other people had been questioned on suspicion of murder.

A 19-year-old man and a 23-year old woman were released on police bail pending further inquiries, while a 23-year-old woman has been released with no further action.

Earlier, four other people were questioned about possible driving offences.

Two men, aged 22 and 44, and two women aged 18 and 46 - were arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless and inconsiderate driving and failure to report a road traffic collision and released on police bail pending further inquiries.

All of those arrested were from the Newport area.

Master baker

Gwent Police released a tribute to Mr Dubiniec from his son.

It read: "My father was a loving, patient and caring man who was adored by his wife, children and grandchildren. He will be greatly missed.

"My father was a master baker for about 30 years in Poland.

"It was his passion and he came to Newport to pass on his knowledge and skills to the local bakery where he was working.

"My family and I would like to thank the police and the people of Newport for their help and support during the investigation."
