‘Some of those people are believed to have filmed events as they unfolded; I ask that any videos are not shared via social media to avoid causing the young man’s family any more distress at this already incredibly difficult time for them.

‘Instead, please go to the police immediately. A number of people have spoken to us, but we need to hear from anyone who has information that could help.
