Stephen Derbyshire, who is 33 and also from Fleetwood, was arrested on suspicion of murder.

My thoughts first and foremost remain with Michael’s family and friends at this time.

While we have now made an arrest our enquiries are very much on-going and I would continue to appeal to anyone who has any information which could assist to come forward.
