Two men arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder a builder in the Forest of Dean in 2002 have been released on bail.

A 53-year-old from Cheltenham and 46-year-old from Cinderford were questioned by detectives after being arrested on Friday.

Shaun James, 32, is believed to have been kidnapped before being run over.

Two other men also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder were released on bail on Friday.

Mr James' body was found with multiple injuries in Steam Mills Road, Cinderford, on 15 December 2002.

Detectives reopened the case last December as a murder inquiry.

Det Ch Insp Steve Porter from Gloucestershire Police appealed for anyone with information to contact the force.
