The family of a man who died following an assault in Carlton have spoken of their loss.

John Inger, 58, of Arnold, (pictured) was pronounced dead at the scene after officers were called to an address in Walton Court, Carlton, at around 5.30am on Saturday 26 August 2017.

Steven Wooley, 31 of Manvers Court, Sneinton, has been charged with murder and has been remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 20 November 2017.

In a joint statement, Mr Inger's family today said: "As a family we are shocked and saddened at the death of John, our Dad, brother and Uncle.

"We have no comment to make with regard to the murder investigation that has been launched. We are being supported by our family liaison officers.

"We would like to thank our family and friends that have contacted us and offered their support. We would now ask for some privacy and time to grieve."
