UK Police have arrested a man over the death of Robert Hart at the Parklife music festival in Manchester.
The 26-year-old festival-goer was punched to the ground just before headliner Snoop Dogg took to the stage, and was rushed to hospital but died of his injuries four days later.
A 31 year-old man was arrested in Cheshire on Saturday June 21 on suspicion of his murder.
Police and Parklife bosses have thanked the public for their help in the ongoing investigation, which they have stressed is still very much ongoing.
They also thanked the Manchester Evening News, which put an e-fit picture of the suspect on every billboard in the city.
Detective Inspector Richard Eales said: “Over the last two weeks, we have received a huge amount 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.”
Parklife festival director Sacha Lord-Marchionne said: “We’re delighted someone has been arrested.
“Robert’s death didn’t just devastate his family, it touched 70,000 people who attended the event.
“I cannot begin to imagine what his family are going through.
“I think, as is always the way in Manchester whenever there is a tragedy, the whole community has come together.
“I want to thank every single person who attended the event for their support.
“And also the media for publicising the appeal, especially the M.E.N
“I walked through Manchester and saw the evofit on every single billboard.
“Everyone has been behind it and without their help no doubt we wouldn’t have seen this arrest today.
He added: “We will continue working closely with the police as we have been doing over the past two weeks.”
