Over the weekend officers arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of murder and suspicion of possession of cannabis.

A second man, also aged 26, was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Both men have since been released under investigation.

A man, aged 54, held on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released under investigation.
