Two teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 21-year-old homeless man in Kent.

Razvan Sirbu was found beaten to death at 07:15 BST on Sunday at the Loose Valley Conservation Area in Tovil, Maidstone.

On Friday, Kent Police arrested a 14 and 15-year-old from the Maidstone area.

This follows the arrest of two men, aged 18 and 19, on Thursday. All four remain in police custody.

'My only child'

Results from a post mortem examination of Mr Sirbu have revealed he died from blunt force trauma to the head and body.

On Friday, Mr Sirbu's mother, who did not wish to be named, paid tribute to a son who was always willing to help those in need.

She said her son was very shy, "full of mercy and empathy" and "listened to people intently".

She added: "Razvan was my only child, so he was spoilt by the whole family. He was also the only grandson to my parents."
