Parklife Festival Killing Suspect Arrested
A 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a festival-goer in a row over an inflatable doll.
Robert Hart, 26, was punched to the ground at the Parklife music event in Heaton Park, Manchester, last Saturday.
It followed an altercation over his girlfriend, Gemma, being repeatedly struck by the inflatable doll.
The pair were in front of the festival's main stage when the incident took place at about 9.15pm.
Mr Hart, from Macclesfield, Cheshire, was knocked unconscious and died later in hospital.
In a tribute to Mr Hart, an avid Manchester City fan, his family said he had "a love of music and a love of life" and was "simply awesome".
Police said the suspect was arrested in Cheshire and taken into custody where he is being questioned.
Detective Inspector Richard Eales said: "Over the last two weeks, we have received a huge amount of support by both the public and the media for the appeal to help find the person responsible.
"We now have a man in custody but that doesn't mean the investigation is at an end. We are continuing to investigate and we are renewing our appeal for information or any relevant footage."
