Police identify stab victim

Police have identified a man found dead from stab wounds at his flat in Brighton, as detectives continue to question a 21-year-old on suspicion of murder.

Jeffrey Burrows, 40, was discovered in the property where he lived alone in Norfolk Square at 7.40pm on Sunday, Sussex Police have said.

Detectives said they believe Mr Burrows was not the victim of a random attack as they continued to detain a local man.

A knife recovered from the flat was being examined to find out whether it has any link to the death of Mr Burrows, who reportedly worked as a bricklayer.
