Police investigating the murder of a 37-year-old man in a Warwickshire village have arrested two men in Derby.

The men, aged 41 and 46, were detained in a joint operation by Warwickshire and Derbyshire Police on Tuesday, a spokesman said.

David Gower, of Rugby Road, Bulkington, was stabbed three times in the chest and shot in the hip on 26 June.

Three men, arrested in July, have already been charged in relation to the murder, they added.

A fourth man, aged 27, also arrested in July, remains on police bail, pending further enquiries.

The men arrested on Tuesday have been transferred to Warwickshire.
