The family of a man who died after being stabbed outside a pub in Cambourne have paid tribute to his “big and unique personality”.
Chris West, 30, from Cambourne, suffered a stab wound to the heart in an incident which took place outside the Monkfield Arms, in Monkfield Lane, at about 12.35am on Saturday.
A second man, aged 26, was also stabbed in the incident and 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.
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.
