A family has paid tribute to a 33-year-old man who was found dead at a house.

The body of Paul Tully, 35, was discovered in Beacon Grove, St Helens, in the early hours of Thursday 14 August.

Jamie Hughes, 33, of no fixed address, has appeared at Liverpool Crown Court accused of his murder, and was remanded in custody.

A statement from Mr Tully's family described him as "a likeable lad with a cheeky smile."

'We all loved him'

The statement said: "Paul was always polite to people such as his neighbours and local shopkeepers.

"Paul was no angel and has been through some hard times with all his family but he was a likeable lad with a cheeky smile and we all loved him.

"He loved reading and writing short stories and listening to radio.

"He will be missed greatly by all his family and will always be loved by us all."

Another 33-year-old man, arrested on Thursday, was released on police bail pending further inquiries.
