Detectives have been given more time to question two men arrested on suspicion of murder following a disturbance in Downham on Sunday night.

The pair were detained after a 39-year-old man was found with serious head injuries at a house in Bulrush Avenue in the town.

The man was treated by both police and paramedics, but was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem examination is expected to take place later today.
