Detectives have launched a murder hunt after Josh Hanson, 21, was knifed in the neck while partying inside ‘the RE bar’ at around 1.10am.

Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, who is leading the murder hunt, said: “I’m appealing to anyone who was in the RE bar between midnight and the time of the incident, just after 1am, to contact us.

“It is believed there would have been around 40 people present at the time of the incident, many of whom left the venue as paramedics worked to save Josh’s life. It is imperative these people contact us to let us know what they saw.

“We are also keen to hear from anyone who was in Field End Road area around 1am Sunday morning who may have seen or heard anything that they now think might be because of the incident at the RE bar.

“I would also appeal to anyone who had been at the RE bar throughout Saturday night, even if they left before Joshua was attacked, to contact us.
