Police said they were called to Prince of Wales Road just before 9am on Sunday morning, to reports of a man refusing to move from the memorial to Ibish Peri, who died last week, outside Bished nightclub.

They said the man was given a verbal warning and told not to return, and warned that if he did he may face a dispersal order ordering him to stay away from an area.

One person said the man had been seen eating food and drinking beers that had been left in tribute to Mr Peri.

It came ahead of a candlelit tribute to Mr Peri on Sunday night, which hundreds attended and which saw the road closed.

Tributes have flooded in for Mr Peri, who owned Code Red Promotions, the firm behind a number of bars and clubs in the city, with one person calling him a “true gent”.
