A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 46-year-old man was fatally injured in Lincoln.

Emergency services were called to a flat on Carr Street in Lincoln, off Carholme Road, at 12.18am on Sunday, July 25.

There they found the victim with a serious head injury. He was taken to hospital for treatment but could not be saved.

Another man, aged 22, from Lincoln, was arrested on suspicion of murder. He remains in police custody for questioning.

A police cordon is in place at the property this morning and officers remain on scene while enquiries continue.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Myszczyszyn, of East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU), said:

“I know this is a concerning incident and people living in this area of Lincoln, or indeed anyone further afield, may well feel worried about what has happened.

“We are working through the exact details of the circumstances to establish what’s happened and have a number of officers dedicated to the investigation.

“We are working closely with the family of the man who has lost his life and doing our best to support them.

“I can confirm that we’re not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident and this morning we continue to question a man who has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

“I would like to appeal for information from the public. Were you in the St Mary’s Road area of Lincoln around 10pm last night and saw a disturbance between a man or a woman?

Two men have died after a van crashed with a lorry on the A17 near Boston on Friday afternoon.

It happened shortly after midday on July 23, on the A17 between Bicker Bar and Wigtoft. The collision involved an HGV and a van.

A 46-year-old man and a 31-year-old man travelling in the van were pronounced dead at the scene, despite efforts from emergency services. Their families have been informed.

The driver of the HGV suffered minor injuries.

The road has been closed in both directions and will remain closed until at least 10pm on July 23, while officers carry out an initial investigation and recover the vehicles.

Lincolnshire Police are appealing for anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed the collision to contact officers as soon as possible.

Officers are particularly keen to see any dashcam footage which might have captured the vehicles prior to the collision, or the collision itself.

Detective Sergeant James Kirk from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This is a devastating incident for all involved and our thoughts are with the families of both men at this time.

“We are in the very early stages of our investigation, and we would be very grateful for any assistance that the public can offer us in piecing together what happened.

“Any information, no matter how small you think it might be, will be a great help.

“We would be keen to see any relevant dashcam footage or speak to anyone who witnessed the collision.”
