Re: South Wales Police can confirm the name of the 27 year-old man who suddenly died following a disturbance in Broad Street, Barry, in the early hours of Saturday, 2 July, 2016, as being Thomas Julian Sloman.<br />
His family have paid the following tribute to him:<br />
'He was a loving son, devoted father and boyfriend, brother, grandson, uncle and nephew. He was deeply loved by all his family and friends. It had been his honour to serve his country as a member of the Welsh Guards (Prince of Wales Company) - he served in Afghanistan. He had recently left the army and was looking forward to the next chapter of his life. He was a good guy with a heart of gold, and will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew him.'<br />
Thomas is believed to have collapsed following a disturbance in the street at approximately 4am and officers are trying to establish the full circumstances surrounding what happened. <br />
Despite the efforts of police and paramedics at the scene, Thomas died shortly afterwards at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.<br />
They are urging anybody who was there at the time or in the moments before he collapsed to come forward if they have not already done so.<br />
 His sudden death is currently being treated as unexplained - a post mortem has been carried out and officers are now awaiting further tests to determine the cause of death.<br />
Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oshea, said: 'Thomas Sloman’s family are being given support by specially trained family liaison officers during this very difficult time.<br />
'We are trying to establish exactly what happened in the moments leading up to when Thomas collapsed.<br />
'Anyone who was there at the time or who has information, who has not yet spoken to us, should make contact immediately.'<br />
A 42 year-old man who was arrested on Saturday in connection with the incident has been released on police bail pending further enquirers.<br />
No further action is being taken against a 29 year-old ma
