A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder on Friday but was later released without charge.

“He is described as a white man, possibly of Eastern European origin, with a pale complexion.

“He is believed to be about 6ft tall and was wearing dark clothing with a dark baseball cap and light blue jeans.”
