Detectives have been granted more time to question two teenagers in connection with the murder of an 18-year-old who was stabbed to death in a town-centre street.

A 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder on Sunday.

Raymond James Quigley - known as James - from Wymondham in Norfolk, was stabbed to death in Westgate Street at around 3.30pm on Tuesday.

A Home Office post-mortem examination was conducted on Thursday concluded that Mr Quigley sustained four stab wounds to the torso and died as a result of these injuries.

Family and friends have left flowers and cards where the teenager died.

On Sunday, Suffolk police officers made an application for a warrant of further detention at Ipswich Magistrates Court, where they were granted an additional 36 hours to question the suspects.

It will expire in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
