Tributes have been paid to a dad who was killed in Oxford.

57-year-old Graham Collier died from serious head injuries on Saturday after an altercation on Cowley Road on Thursday evening.

Rodney Brain has been charged with his murder following the fatal fight.

His family have now released a tribute saying ‘he did not deserve to be taken so viciously’.

They said: “Graham was our father and we have great memories of him.

“He lived his life the way he chose.

“Dad’s life did not deserve to be taken so viciously, so instantly, and without any goodbyes.

“We will cherish the memories we do have and let him live through us.

“Dad; may your body rest in peace and your mind be taken somewhere a lot kinder.”
