Police are continuing to review CCTV and are urging people to get in touch.

Det Insp Ade George, leading the investigation, said: “We’re making good progress with our enquiries, but we still need anyone with information to get in touch with us if they saw or heard anything on Wednesday night.

“I’m really keen to hear from anyone who was driving in the area at the time. We know that there were cars driving on the road in the moments before the attack, and it may be that dash cam footage will give us important evidence.

“It’s really important you speak to us if you have any information on what happened, who was responsible, or why Ronan was attacked.”

Anyone with information can call police on 101 quoting reference number 3854-290622.
