A murder investigation has been launched following the death of a man in Wollaton.
Emergency services were called to Wollaton Road at 8.15pm on Christmas Day after a man was assaulted.
The 29-year-old victim was taken to hospital by ambulance but died a short time later.
His family has been informed and are currently being supported by specially trained officers.
A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Two other men, aged 32 and 26, were also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
All three suspects remain in police custody.
A scene remains in place as investigative work continues, although road closures near the Crown Island have now been lifted.
Detective Chief Inspector Matt Croome, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: “As our investigation continues our thoughts will remain with this man’s family.
“This is a tragic incident and we are currently working hard to understand what happened.
“To this end we are encouraging people with additional information to come forward.
“We’d like to speak to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious and would particularly like to hear from residents and motorists with CCTV, doorbell camera, or dashcam footage from the area.”
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 375 of 25 December 2023.
Information can also be passed on anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or by clicking the following link: https://mipp.police.uk/operation/33EM23E59-PO1
