Further arrest in Scunthorpe murder probe

A 47-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Raymond Adam Ward after a body was found in a disused building in Scunthorpe this week.

As previously reported, police believe it was a targeted attack and two men, aged 37 and 24, had already been arrested earlier in connection with the incident, which happened on Cliff Gardens on July 10.

Investigating officers have been given more time to question the two men and a 47-year-old male was arrested on the evening of Thursday, July 12.

Four police cars, including one around the corner, were at the scene and police tape was around a property on Cliff Gardens.

A post-mortem of Raymond Ward, 51, found that the victim suffered a physical attack and was fatally injured.

The victim’s family were informed earlier in the week.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 627 of July 9.
