A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a "loving" father of five in Crayford after he handed himself in to police.

Wayne Hoskyns, 41, was described by his widow as "a loving husband and daddy" after he died in hospital on Saturday.

"Wayne was assaulted in broad daylight in Cray Gardens and we are making progress with the investigation, but there are still some details we need to establish."
