A second man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was found stabbed in Coventry.

Liam McGerrigan, 27, from the city, was pronounced dead at the scene after officers were called to Holyhead Road at about 22:10 BST on Thursday. He had been stabbed in the chest.

A 25-year-old Coventry man has been arrested in the Devon area.

West Midlands Police have been granted more time to question a 33-year-old man.

The 36-hour extension runs until Monday afternoon, the force said.

Detectives believe Mr McGerrigan staggered to Holyhead Road near the junction with Northumberland Road where he collapsed.
