THE family of a footballer murdered on Brighton seafront have paid tribute to a "beloved" son, brother and friend.

Miguel Monteiro Delgado, 20, from Crawley, suffered serious head injuries after being mown down on Marine Parade Sunday morning.

His family, friends and and girlfriend were at his bedside until his life support was switched off this afternoon.


His family said: "Suel was a beloved son, brother and friend.

"He always took care of his family and he will be sadly missed." Detectives from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team have launched a murder investigation after officers were initially called to a report of a large group of people fighting on the seafront early on Sunday.

As they responded, three of the group had then been struck by a car.

The two other victims, an 18-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, remain in a serious condition in hospital.
