When police officers were alerted to the brawl at 9.20pm they found blood on the ground where violence had flared and Mr Hersi was already on his way to hospital.

A post-mortem examination revealed that he died as a result of a single stab wound to the chest.

Seven people were arrested on suspicion of murder in the immediate aftermath of the attack.

A 21-year-old Sheffield man remained in police custody last night.

Two men and a woman, all from the Sheffield area, have been released under investigation and three men have been released with no further action to be taken.
