Detective Chief Inspector Jamie Piscopo, who is leading the investigation, said: “I would appeal to those people who were part of either group that Sunday morning to come forward and talk to police.

“We have identified two of the women, but there are other people that we need to speak with. It is clear that you may have vital information about the events that led up to Romeo’s murder and who is responsible.

“This is a really popular and busy area, with a nightlife that runs until the early hours so I know there will be other people who may have seen something that have yet to come forward.

“Romeo was a loving and committed father of two, and a much loved brother and son. I would urge anyone who may have seen something, or knows the identity of Romeo’s murderer to get in touch with us and help us find answers for his family.”
