Two teenage boys, both aged 15, have since been arrested on suspicion of murder.
And this evening a 15-year-old girl from Nuneaton was also arrested on suspicion of murder. All three remain in police custody.

“Though we believe this to be an isolated incident, with no threat to the wider public, residents can expect to see a heightened police presence in the area for their reassurance.
"We are aware there is footage circulating of the altercation on social media and we would ask people not to share it while we continue our ongoing investigation to work out the circumstances behind this man's death.
"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man at this sad time."
