Steven Feeley, 39, of Winthorpe, Skegness, was charged with murder and appeared in court last week.

A woman in her 20s has been released from police custody but remains under investigation while police look into the circumstances of the incident.

Gareth’s family, in paying tribute to him, said: “His heart was always in the right place, he was loved by everyone who knew him and lived everyday to its fullest.

“He lived for his three children, cherished his brother James, his beautiful sister Rachael and did anything for his mum and dad.

“We are going to miss you and love you very dearly, rest in peace son forever in our hearts.”
