Tributes have been paid to a man who died after he was stabbed outside a pub in Cambourne at the weekend.

Police responded to calls at 12.35am on Saturday, October 28, with reports of violence in Monkfield Lane.

Two people had been stabbed. Chris West, 30, from Cambourne, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem, carried out by Dr Fitzpatrick-Swallow, revealed Mr West, known as 'Westy', died as a result of a stab wound to the heart.

In a statement, Mr West's family said:"Anyone who knew Chris knows exactly what should be written here.

"No amount of words would ever describe the loss of such a big and unique personality, whose immeasurable love for his wife, family and friends leaves us all with the most treasured memories.

"As difficult as this tragic time is we would like to thank everyone for their kinds words and support, and also ask for privacy through this difficult time."

The other victim, a 26-year-old man, was initially taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with life threatening injuries.

He was later transferred to Papworth Hospital and is expected to be discharged in the next couple of days.

Kai Nazir, 19, of The Crescent, St Neots appeared at Peterborough Magistrates Court on Monday, October 30, charged with murder and grievous bodily harm with intent.

He was remanded in custody at Cambridge Crown Court on the morning of October 30.
