"It is sad."

A concerned tram user, who asked not to be named, added: "I am deeply saddened by this.

"It is truly shocking and I hope we will not get to hear about incidents like this happening around here again.

"It is concerning."

A police spokesman said: "Emergency services were called to Weekday Cross shortly after 4.30am this morning when a man was found injured in the road.

"He was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
