Arrests made in connection with Gloucester murder

A man and a woman have been arrested as part of an ongoing murder investigation in Gloucester.

A 30-year-old woman from Newport was arrested yesterday evening and a 38-year-old man from Bristol was arrested overnight, both on suspicion of murder.

This morning police also revealed more detail from the on-going murder investigation after a man was discovered with fatal injuries near Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

It is now believed the man who died was aged in his 30s, lived in Bristol and is originally from Poland, although formal identification has not yet taken place.

New evidence has also come to light which confirms one of the vehicles detectives are seeking is a silver Mercedes estate, not a silver Ford Focus estate as originally believed.

Officers are still asking for any information or dash cam footage in relation to the Mercedes and a black Audi A5 or A7 linked to the investigation.

Police believe the victim was transported to Great Western Road by car before being left in the street.

Great Western Road has been re-opened, but nearby Hyde Lane was closed earlier as part of the on-going investigation.

The man and woman arrested remain in custody at this time while enquiries continue.

Detectives are still appealing for anyone with information to contact police on 101 and quote incident 291 of 21 November.
