A fifth man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a man who was stabbed to death outside a Manchester nightclub.

Clarence Edwards, 26, was found outside the RBase club on Charles Street in the early hours of Sunday.

He was taken to hospital but died later of his injuries.

Four other men, two aged 22, and two aged 26 and 37, have been bailed pending further enquiries.

Mr Edwards was jailed for his role in the 2011 death of John Lee Barrett.

One of 12 men jailed over that death, he was convicted of violent disorder and sentenced to two-and-a-half years in March 2013.
