Forensic teams arrived at the scene at about 17:00 GMT and began photographing belongings strewn on the ground outside Pizzo Oro, where the incident took place.

A worker with OneAgency, based nearby, said: "We noticed the sirens and looked out of the window and realised something horrible had happened. The ambulance came and the police, and the area was cordoned off."

Another worker nearby, who did not want to be named, said that a "colleague saw a few people arguing" before police and ambulance were called.
