Detectives would still like to speak to anyone who was in the area of Havelock Street in Kettering between 20:30 and 21:15 GMT on 14 January, when the attack took place.

Det Ch Insp Ally White, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime Team, said: "We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw a light coloured Audi A4 convertible and a dark blue BMW 1 Series, which were believed to be in the area around the time of the offence."

In a statement, Mr Jallow's family said: "Tairu was much loved and we all have many fond memories of him and our times together. He will be sadly missed and remembered with love."
