Teenager arrest 'linked to drugs deaths' in Boston

Police have confirmed the arrest of a teenager is part of an investigation into two deaths linked to a "particular batch" of heroin.

The bodies of two men, aged 22 and 42, were found last week, one in woodland off Fenside Road, Boston, the other at a house in Union Road in the town.

Officers arrested a 17-year-old at a property on Brady Street on Friday on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

He has been bailed until 24 May.

In a statement, the force said the men "had both been involved in the use of heroin and one line of inquiry is that they suffered an adverse reaction to a particular batch".

Lincolnshire Police said the arrest was part of a "wider investigation into the deaths."
