A second suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of a man in Wiltshire.

Jordan Taylor, 25, from Hilperton, died from stab wounds after he and a friend were attacked in Trowbridge on Sunday morning.

Wiltshire Police said the 18-year-old from Trowbridge, was in custody in Melksham.

A spokesman said a 27-year old man from Westbury, who was arrested on Thursday, had been released without charge.

The force asked people not speculate on social media as to who might be responsible.

Det Insp Jim Taylor said: "Speculation on social media could be detrimental to our investigation and could jeopardise any future court proceedings.

"We are also aware that tensions are understandably running high within the local community and amongst Jordan's friends."
