That victim has now been identified as 26-year-old Jordan Siree, of the Skegness area.

Scott Rowen, 28, of Glentworth Crescent in the town, was charged on December 24 for the murder of Jordan Siree.

Rowen was one of the two men arrested by police on Wednesday in connection with the incident, with the other man, a 30-year-old, released without further action.

Police were still at the scene on Wednesday afternoon (December 23).

Flowers and balloons have been left at the scene in tribute of Jordan’s death.

Detective Inspector Andy McWatt, senior investigating officer for Lincolnshire Police, said: “This is a truly tragic incident and will be felt even more keenly by the family of Jordan Siree because of the time of year.

“Violence like this has no place on the streets of Lincolnshire. We are continuing our investigation into this incident and continuing to appeal for witnesses.
