Tributes have been paid to a man who died in Scarborough on Saturday.
Peter Houghton, 59, from Hull, died following an incident in Newborough on Saturday 17 September 2022.
In a statement, his family said: "Pete was one of life’s characters and would help anyone. He was loved by many, he was a devoted husband and a loving family man. He loved life, and lived it to the full."
A 34-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the death has been interviewed by police, and has been released on conditional bail while the investigation team pursue extensive enquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.
Mr Houghton's family are being supported by specialist officers.
Detective Superintendent Fran Naughton, of North Yorkshire Police, said: “I know this tragic incident will understandably cause concern in the local community, but I want to reassure Scarborough residents that it is an isolated occurrence. I would also ask people to avoid speculating about it online while our enquiries continue.
“We have had a positive response to our appeal for information and witnesses so far. If anyone else has information that could assist the investigation – particularly people who were in the Newborough/Eastborough area of the town between 9pm and 9.30pm on Saturday 17 September – I would ask them to come forward as soon as possible. Please dial 101 and ask for the Major Investigation Team, quoting reference 12220166855.”
