A 38-year-old Fakenham man has been arrested in connection with a three-month murder investigation in the town.

Detectives began the inquiry after the body of Steven Murphy, 45, was discovered with stab wounds at his home on King's Road on October 1.

A man was arrested and questioned on Wednesday, but was later released without charge. He is due to answer police bail in April.

Det Chief Insp Jes Fry, who is leading the investigation, said: 'An operation was carried out which involved a person being arrested and interviewed. That person has now been bailed until April while we make further forensic submissions.
