DETECTIVES have urged witnesses who may have seen four suspects arrested in connection with a murder in Scarborough to come forward as they may hold vital evidence

North Yorkshire Police officers launched the murder inquiry after a man, aged in his 30s, was found critically injured in a flat on Queen’s Terrace at about 11.40pm on Wednesday.

Despite the efforts of the paramedics, he was pronounced dead at the scene. The four men arrested in connection with the investigation, who are aged 29, 34 and two 30-year-olds, were yesterday still in police custody for questioning.

Detective Superintendent Dai Malyn, who is leading the inquiry, appealed for anyone who was in the Eastborough area of Scarborough on Wednesday evening to come forward, especially if they saw a group of four men leaving the scene.

He added: “Even the smallest detail could be very important. You may think that the information you have is irrelevant, but I urge you to come forward and contact us, so that we can assess its evidential value.”

The victim’s immediate family have been informed of his death, but police have yet to release details of his identity.
