The Metropolitan Police (Met) have arrested two men, whom police said were at the scene, on suspicion of murder.

A 33-year-old man remains in police custody whilst one man, aged 25, has since been released without further action.

A cordon was pictured in place outside Aura bar, in Sudbury, on Sunday with forensics teams collecting evidence from the street close by.

The bar had hosted a Halloween party and an eyewitness told them she watched paramedics perform CPR “for a long time” on the victim as they tried to save his life.
