Murder investigation after father-of-one Paddy Woodhall killed in Good Friday pub brawl
Girlfriend leads tributes to 'loving and loyal' father
Family and friends have paid tribute to a father who died after a pub brawl in Birmingham on Good Friday.
Paddy Woodhall, 27, died in hospital on Saturday evening after the alleged fight at The Deer’s Leap pub in Kingstanding, Tamworth, on Friday evening.
Last night relatives described the father-of-one as an “angel”. His girlfriend, Stacey Davies, a hairdresser, said: “Actually can’t believe it. Words just can’t describe how I’m feeling”.
“'The most lovely, loyal man has been taken away from me, his family and his little boy!”
Another relative, cousin Claire Boyle, posted: 'My beautiful cousin. Words can't describe how I'm feeling. Gonna miss you loads. Rest in paradise Paddy”.
Police have arrested four men, all in their twenties, after the disturbance which occurred in the pub’s garden, according to the Daily Mail.
Officers from West Midlands Police have launched an appeal for witnesses. Detective inspector Garry Plant said: “It was a sunny Bank Holiday afternoon and we know the pub was busy with drinkers all day.
“The disorder broke out in the middle of the evening and there would have been a number of people who have information about what happened”.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
