THE Telegraph & Argus has opened this online book of condolence to bring together tributes to 59-year-old Santokh 'Charlie' Singh.

The Bradford man sadly died on November 30 as a result of serious head injuries.

A murder inquiry has since been launched by West Yorkshire Police.

But in a time when loved ones cannot gather together and pay their respects in person, this online book of condolence will act as a way for families and friends to virtually pay tribute.

Anyone who would like to pay tribute or offer their condolences is invited to leave a message on this page.

To add your own contribution, click the red 'Add your contribution now' button below.

There may be a slight delay in your messages appearing on the page as they must first be approved by Telegraph & Argus staff.

Where do I start Charlie no amount of words can describe how devasted we all are that you have been taken away. You was a fantastic person, a true diamond who would do anything for anyone. You put so many smiles on not only my face over the years but everybody you was around. You was the life and sole of the party. So caring and kind and I can't thank you enough for everything you ever did for me. The world is going to be lost without you and your banter Charlie Singh the king RIP and fly high my friend love Dancha as you always called me & the family xxxx
