The family of a man found dead in his home have paid tribute to a "gentle, peaceful and loving man".

Robert Farley, 61, was discovered in the house in West Walk, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, at about 01:00 BST on Friday.

Mr Farley's daughter said her father was given the nickname of "the quiet man" by those who knew him.

She said: "This portrays his personality well, he was a gentle, peaceful and loving man.

"Earlier in his life he was hard working, very sociable and well-liked by many.

"Bobby had his own battle with alcohol, he tried numerous times to overcome this with support from his friends and family."

She said he was a son, brother, father and grandfather to three boys.

"Our hearts are filled with grief and sadness at the untimely death of our much-loved father, grandad and friend," she said.

Police repeated an appeal to the local community for anyone with information to come forward.
