Nottinghamshire Police say a murder victim and the attacker knew each other, and that it was not a random attack.

Police are continuing to investigate after the attack in Mapperley Park in the early hours of this morning in which a man died.

Superintendent Ted Antill of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

CCTV footage was quickly located, door to door enquiries were conducted and witnesses were interviewed. We have also searched several properties in connection with this incident.

These enquiries continue. However, we believe this is an isolated incident where the parties involved are known to each other and it would appear that this was not a random attack.

We have stepped up patrols in the area and are speaking to local people to reassure them and provide them with appropriate information about what has happened. We would like to point out that this is an extremely rare incident.

Volunteers who've painstakingly constructed a replica Anglo-Saxon house in Nottinghamshire have been left devastated after it was destroyed in a suspected arson attack.

The wooden hut known as a Grubenhaus was found burnt to the ground at Skylarks Nature Reserve close to the Holme Pierrepont Country Park near Nottingham.

The building was designed to match the archaeological remains of a wooden structure previously unearthed at the site. The team of volunteers built it by hand using traditional methods dating back nine hundred years. They had been working on the project for eighteen months.
