Three arrests after body found in Kettering flat

Two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the body of a man was found in a flat in Northamptonshire.

Police said the victim, who is believed to be a 62-year-old local man, was found at a flat in Havelock Street, Kettering, on Saturday.

The men, aged 30 and 35, and the woman, 36, are all from the Kettering area.

The victim has yet to be formally identified and a post-mortem examination is to be held on Monday.

Det Ch Insp Steve Woliter, leading the inquiry, said: "It is likely that the motive for the attack was robbery, and that the victim knew his attackers."

The crime scene and immediate surroundings in Havelock Street remain closed.

Northamptonshire Police have asked for any witnesses or anyone with any information about the death to contact them.
