The family of a man who died following an assault in Tilbury have described him as their ‘hero’.
Craig North, 35, from Tilbury was found injured in Feenan Highway shortly before 9.45pm on Sunday 2 January.
He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries where, sadly, he later died.
The investigation into the incident is now a homicide enquiry.
In a statement his family said:
“Craig was our hero. He was a loving and devoted father, partner, son, brother, uncle, son in law and friend.
"He was loved by so many.
"He will always be in our hearts and never forgotten. You are our warrior.”
A 19 year-old man, Darnel Curtin, of Chesterton Way, Tilbury, has been charged with attempted murder in connection with the assault.
