The family of a man who died after being discovered unconscious in a flat in Lancashire have said he was a "loving dad".
Andrew Boardman, 53, was found on Saturday by police responding to reports of a man being assaulted at a flat on Glen Eldon Road, St Annes.
Mr Boardman was taken to hospital, but died on Sunday morning.
Police arrested a 22-year-old on suspicion of murder and have been granted more time to question him.
A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Boardman died of multiple injuries as a result of a sustained attack.
A woman, 19, and a man, 23, previously arrested, have been released without charge.
A spokesman for Mr Boardman's family said he had spent "the majority of his life in Lytham and worked as a baker in St Annes".
"He was recently divorced to Eileen and was a loving dad to Zoe and Sarah," he said.
"We are saddened by his sudden passing and would like to thank everyone for their support."
