Police investigating the death of a man in Inverclyde have appealed for help in tracing three people who may have witnessed him being attacked.

Patrick Bradley, 29, died following a disturbance involving a number of men in Wellington Way, Greenock, at about 01:15 on 30 August.

Three men have appeared in court charged with his murder.

Police Scotland said they wanted to trace two men and a woman who may have witnessed the disturbance.

Mr Bradley was found seriously injured at the scene and taken to Inverclyde Royal Hospital, where he later died.

Derek Paterson/Grant, 37, from Glasgow, appeared at Greenock Sheriff Court on Wednesday along with Jordan Grant, 19, and Lee Grant, 16, both from Greenock.

All three men made no plea or declaration and were remanded in custody.

Witness descriptions

The two men police want to trace were walking on Wellington Street, near Wellington path, possibly with a medium sized dog.

The woman was described as wearing light clothing and had light blonde hair which was tied back in a loose ponytail.

Det Insp Una Maider said: "Firstly I would like to reiterate that we are looking to identify these three people as witnesses to the disturbance.

"I would ask anyone either who lives locally in the area or taxi drivers or motorists who may have been around the Wellington Street area to contact me."
