Police investigating the fatal stabbing of a man in North Shields have made further arrests.

Uriel Moskwa, 43, of North King Street, died in hospital early on Saturday hours after being found with a single stab wound in Aldwych Drive.

Two men, aged 27 and 21, were arrested and later bailed on suspicion of wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm.

Another man and a woman, both aged 22, are being held on suspicion of murder.

A force spokesman said officers were alerted by reports of a man being threatened with a knife.

It is thought those involved were known to each other.
