Det Supt Richard Jones said: “A young man has tragically lost his life early this morning and we are doing all we can to identify the person responsible.

“CCTV shows a disturbance which starts in the street near McDonald’s and moves towards the Oxfam store where the victim has collapsed having sustained a wound as a result of being stabbed.”

Det Supt Jones said “significant police inquiries” are continuing and thanked the local community for its “understanding” while cordons are in place.
