The family of a taxi driver man who died at Manchester Airport on Friday have paid tribute to him.
57-year-old William Brent Taylor, was taken to hospital after police were called to reports of an assault at a car park at Terminal 2 of Manchester Airport on Friday morning, where he sadly died.
Two men, aged 55 and 26, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and have been released under investigation and police say that enquiries are ongoing.
Paying tribute to William, his family said: “First of all can we say thank you to the family that was with our dad at his final moments.
“We would like to thank the emergency services for all their efforts with our dad and GMP who have been amazing with keeping us informed and up to date. Dad will be home soon so our family can try and come to terms with the circumstances and we’d ask that people please refrain from pointing the blame and let the police do their job.
“We will miss him so much and respectfully ask for time to grieve as a family.”
Detective Chief Inspector Carl Jones, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “We are continuing to support William’s family who are understandably devastated by their loss.
“Our investigation to establish the exact circumstances surrounding this incident remains ongoing and I would ask anyone with information that could assist our enquiries to please get in touch.”
