The 15-year-old was later released on police bail pending further enquiries, while the 18-year-old remains in custody and is to be questioned

Two other teenagers, also aged 15 and 18, were arrested and bailed over the weekend as part of the on-going investigation into the death of the 41-year old father-of-two.

A post-mortem examination found that he died from stab wounds.

Detective Inspector Warren Hines, who is leading the investigation, said: "This enquiry is progressing but we still need anyone who saw anything out of the ordinary in the area before last Thursday morning to contact us."

If you have any information that could help you can call DI Hines and his team on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
