A post-mortem examination revealed the father-of-three died as from a stab wound.

A 23-year-old man who was also attacked remains in a serious condition.

Det Ch Insp Steve Handley said: "We would particularly like to hear from any parents or carers who may have been doing the school run on Catherine Street and the surrounding area on that day.

"The timings of the incident are very close to when parents would be picking their children up from school so I would appeal to anyone who has dashcam footage to please get in touch."
