A cordon was in place behind the nearby Marks and Spencer store, following the incident.

However, police said the incident did not take place in the store’s car park, but in a nearby public access road.

Detective Chief Inspector David Springett, who is leading the investigation, said: “This is an extremely difficult time for Tik’s family and I would ask that their privacy is respected to allow them to grieve in peace.”
