The family of a man who died after a row in a car park have described him as a "friend and helper to so many".

Farook Hameed collapsed after arguing with a man outside Tyseley Community Centre in Sparkhill, Birmingham, on 28 July.

The 68-year-old from Solihull died despite efforts to resuscitate him.

A 44-year-old man from the Billesley area who was arrested remains on bail while police investigations continue.

The results of an initial post-mortem examination proved inconclusive, West Midlands Police said.

A spokesman said they were waiting for further tests before being able to say how he died.

In a statement released through the force, Mr Hameed's family said: "Friend and helper to so many, Farook will be missed by all those whose lives he touched with his unique wit, humour and exceptional style.

"He is survived by his dear wife, Tahmina, five children, Farah, Saba, Mahreen, Bushra and Sakib, and four adoring grandchildren.

"May Allah bless him with peace and grant him the highest rank of heaven."
