Police investigating the death of a Boston man have arrested a third person on suspicion of his murder.

Lincolnshire Police carried out three warrants at properties in the town on Wednesday morning and arrested a 27-year-old man.

Marcin Stolarek, who was 41 and originally from Poland, was found in the South Forty Foot Drain on Chain Bridge Road, Boston, on Sunday, January 12.

As previously reported, it is believed the victim died as a result of a sustained assault before his body was then disposed of in the waterway.

Two other people, Adam Kaminski and Justyna Swiatek both aged 26 and of Union Court, Boston, are both accused of murdering Marcin Stolarek.
