One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Man Arrested After Fatal Bedford Stabbing
Police will continue to question a man this morning after a man in his 30s died when he was stabbed in Bedford.
Officers were called to an address in Byron Crescent at around 4.30pm where they found a man in his 30s pronounced dead in the back of an ambulance following injuries he had sustained.
The area was taped off for a full forensic investigation and the victim, who has not yet been named, was taken to Bedford Hospital south wing. A post-mortem will be held in due course and it is only then that police will know exact cause of death.
An investigation, called Operation Dianthus, was launched by the Beds, Cambs and Herts Major Crime Unit and later a man was arrested and taken to Kempston custody suite where he is still being questioned by officers.
Officers are also appealing to residents in Byron Crescent and neighbouring streets to contact them immediately if they find a knife or other sharp object discarded in their gardens, wheelie bins or elsewhere. Residents in Shakespeare Road may be of particular help.
They are advised not to touch anything they find but to immediately contact police.
Detectives are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to contact them, in confidence, on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
