A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man in his 50s is killed and two others injured in Clacton.

The arrest at 11:40 BST of a 21-year-old man follows an incident at 23:45 BST on Monday.

During the morning, much of the town centre was cordoned off with "a large proportion" of Station Road and Pier Avenue closed.

Police are yet to identify either the man killed or the man they arrested in Clacton.
