Police have confirmed the identity of the deceased as Daniel Walsh, 30, of Trent Road in Grantham. He was taken to Grantham Hospital after what police are calling a “violent incident” but later died.

Flowers and football shirts have been left at the scene in Edinburgh Road, in the Harrowby area, which was cordoned off by police for several hours on Sunday.
