A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 20-year-old student.

Police said Arjun Singh, who went to Nottingham Trent University, was attacked on Long Row in Nottingham just before 04:00 GMT on Saturday.

He was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre but died the next day.

A 20-year-old man has been arrested and remains in custody for questioning. Nottinghamshire Police said officers were continuing to appeal for witnesses.

The force said it was interested in finding two men who were seen leaving the scene on foot after the assault.

Det Insp Richard Monk said a team of detectives had been "working tirelessly" on the investigation.

"This was a serious assault which has resulted in a young man losing his life," he said.

"If you were in the area of the Slug and Lettuce public house around 03:45 GMT on Saturday morning and have not yet spoken to the police, I would urge you to come forward."
