A murder probe has been launched after a man was stabbed to death following a mass brawl in Leamington Spa.

Police were called to the scene in the leafy Warwickshire town at around 10.30pm last night where they found a 35-year-old man dying from knife wounds.

A 34-year-old woman and a man, 27, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody, Warwickshire Police said.

Eyewitnesses have described the shocking scenes which unfolded last night on a quiet street.

One horrified neighbour said: "The police arrived and started performing CPR on him.

"The road was closed off all night and even this morning there were 12 police cars.

"It's not the area where you'd expect something like this to happen."

The man who died is yet to be named.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information about the fight to come forwards.

Chief Superintendent Ben Smith of Warwickshire Police said: "This investigation is in its very early stages and our thoughts are with the family of the deceased.

"There will be a large police presence in the area throughout the day as we work to establish the circumstances around the male's death and I would ask anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident to make contact as they may have information that can help with our enquiries.

"We'd also like to hear from anyone who may have CCTV or dash footage of the incident or from the surrounding area."

Anyone who knows about the stabbing can call Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 557 of May 28, 2020, or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
