A man arrested on suspicion of murder has been released on bail.

The body of Andrew Bloomfield, 58, was discovered in Hillman Avenue, Jaywick, Essex, on 12 July.

Mr Bloomfield's death was initially treated as "unexplained", but a murder investigation was launched after a post-mortem examination revealed he had died from a head injury.

The arrested man, 42, was held on Friday and has been released on bail until 20 August.

A 58-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender was also released on bail on Friday until 23 August.

A woman aged 44 from neighbouring Clacton, also arrested on suspicion of murder, was released on bail earlier this month.
