A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder at around 11pm last night and remains in police custody where he will be questioned by detectives.

Another six people arrested were originally brought in on suspicion of GBH, and were then arrested on suspicion of murder after the victim died.

Four people were initially arrested on Friday in connection with this offence, three men, aged 31, 32, and 33, and a 28-year-old woman.

Two further people, a 36-year-old man, and a 32-year-old woman, were arrested on Sunday and all remain in police custody where they are being questioned by detectives.

“Our investigations are ongoing, and we continue to appeal for any dashcam or CCTV footage from the Newark Road and Frank Swaby Court area which will help us to piece together the movements of the people involved,” a police statement read.

Detective Inspector Andy McWatt is leading the investigation and is appealing for witnesses and footage.

He said: “We know how concerning and frightening it will be for people to hear about this investigation and we are making it a priority to find out what happened. We really need all the help we can get from the public, and we’re asking you to come forward with anything at all you think might help.

"We would rather you come to us with information you are unsure of than risk not mentioning it, no matter how small you think it might be. The smallest piece of information can make a big difference in an investigation, as we’d rather have information and not need it, than miss a key detail.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 101, quoting incident 348 of 14 June, emailing force.control@lincs.police.uk quoting incident 348 of 14 June in the subject line or calling CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
