Two men are being questioned by detectives investigating the murder of a man in Barrow.
Paramedics found the 31 year old suffering from a suspected cardiac arrest and he had injuries consistent with having been assaulted. The man subsequently died.
Police arrested a 38 year old at the scene on Gloucester Street on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.
A second man, aged 39, has also been detained after being located in the Salthouse Mills area of the town. He was taken away by ambulance having suffered a suspected drugs overdose.
"Following the death of the 31 year old, we have ensured we have specially trained officers supporting the family and out thoughts are with them at this time. We have now launched a murder investigation and extra patrols are in the area to gather information about what has happened. It is important that anyone who witnessed anything relating to what has taken place and has yet to speak with us makes contact immediately so we can gather as full a picture of what has taken place as soon as possible.”
