In a tribute released through the force, Adam’s family said: “Adam was a much-loved father, son and brother who will be sorely missed by all of his family and friends.

“He was a quiet lad, and a doting father to his three-year-old daughter. We are devastated to lose him so young.

“We would request privacy at this time to allow us to grieve.”

Cleveland Police arrested eight other people, five men and three women, on suspicion of assisting an offender. They have all been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
