Murder Investigation - Update

Following the murder in Vauxhall Gardens yesterday evening, we are continuing our enquiries and crime scene examination will continue at the location today.

The victim, a 73 year old man, has been identified, but enquiries are on-going to identify and engage with his next of kin, therefore, his name will not be released at this time.

A 51 year old man remains in police custody, having been arrested last night on suspicion of murder. He will be interviewed throughout the course of the day. It is believed that both men were known to each other and no-one else is being sought in relation to this incident.

Several lines of enquiry are being pursued today, these include: interviewing
potential witnesses; house to house enquiries and CCTV analysis.

A team on 12 detectives, led by Detective Chief Inspector Alison Fossey are currently working on the case.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact us on 612612 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
