Two men arrested on suspicion of the murder of a retired farmer in a botched burglary have been released on bail.

The men, aged 25 and 20, were originally arrested at the end of May and bailed over the death of Llywelyn Thomas, 76.

The pair were rearrested on Monday by Cambridgeshire Police. After being interviewed at separate police stations, they were today released on bail, the force said.

A 23-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy remain on bail in connection with the investigation.

A 26-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man who were arrested in May in connection with the inquiry have had their bail cancelled.

Mr Thomas, originally from South Wales, was found dead with injuries to his head and face at his home in Ely Road, Chittering, Cambridgeshire, on December 18 last year.
