A second man arrested after the murder of a teenager near a boxing venue has been released on police bail.

19-year-old Reagan Asbury died in hospital after being stabbed near Walsall Town Hall late on Saturday (14 October) during disorder which broke out at a bout attended by hundreds of fans.

A police spokesman said a 22-year-old man from Derby arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of assisting an offender had been released until next month pending further inquiries.

A 25-year-old man, also from Derby, has previously been bailed after being questioned on suspicion of the same offence.

Speaking earlier this week, Detective Inspector Justin Spanner, who is overseeing the inquiry, said CCTV footage had been recovered as officers attempted to identify the offender.
