Three men have been arrested after a man was stabbed to death in Leeds.

Christopher Wade, 27, of Leeds, died on Wednesday after being attacked near the Butterbowl pub in Butterbowl Drive, Farnley, at about 16:00 BST on Tuesday.

Two men, aged 17 and 19, were arrested in Leeds on Thursday night on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.

A 19-year-old man was arrested in London earlier for the same offence. Five other people were previously detained.

A 23-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy who were arrested in Manchester on suspicion of murder remain in custody, West Yorkshire Police said.

Two men, aged 42 and 45, and a 31-year-old woman who were all arrested in the same city on suspicion of assisting an offender have been released on police bail, the force added.

A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Wade had died as a result of a single stab wound to the leg.
