Another person has been arrested in connection with the death of a young man whose body was found in Clifton last week, after a suspected 'hit-and-run'.

25-year-old Daniel John Hickey, a rugby player from Bristol, died from multiple injuries, and was found by a member of the public outside a pub.

A 22-year-old man went to a police station last night, and was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. A 39-year-old woman and 29-year-old man have already been arrested for this, and are on bail until September 9.

Tributes have poured in for Daniel Hickey, who played for the Bristol Saracens, and has been described as a "legend" and "a great friend".

Bristol mayor George Ferguson has also offered his condolences.
