A sixth person has been arrested in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in a Nottinghamshire nature reserve.

Police were called after a birthday party turned into a fight in Newark at about 22:40 BST, on Friday.

Nathan Somers, 19, from Newark, was found on a path in Beacon Hill Conservation Park.

A post-mortem examination has found that he had died of a stab wound. A murder investigation has begun.

Police have been given more time to question three men, one aged 27 and two aged 18, and two teenage boys, aged 16 and 17, who were arrested on Saturday.

A cordon remains in place at the scene and the park is expected to stay closed while forensic examinations continue.

Police have appealed for witnesses.
