Now police have confirmed they are treating the incident as a murder.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on Sunday evening and a 24-year-old man was arrested on Monday. They both remain in custody.

Chief Detective Inspector Mick Hakin, who is overseeing the investigation, said: “This investigation is in its early stages and we are moving at a rapid pace to understand the circumstances surrounding what happened the last night.”

“We currently have two people in police custody arrested on suspicion of murder.

“While we have identified the victim who is an adult male, and not a child as had been speculated on social media, we are awaiting formal identification and supporting the victims’ family with specially trained officers.

“I understand that this type of incident is shocking and distressing to the local community and we will have officers working in the area for some time as our investigation continues. I urge anyone considering posting any images or videos of this incident online to reflect on the significant distress and upset it could cause the victim’s family and loved ones, and to dissuade them from doing so.

“If you have any information that could help us determine what happened, please contact us.”
