Two arrests were also made in Wales on Thursday in connection with the incident.

A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and a 34-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Both were arrested in the Gwent area.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Tony Yarwood, said,

“We are still trying to piece together what happened in the early hours of Monday morning and I would urge anyone who thinks they have information – but who has not yet come forward – to do so.

A 40-year-old woman and two men aged 44 and 34, who were all arrested in the early hours of Tuesday morning (13 April), have been released on bail.
