Doorman Ian Grant murder: Cambridge man bailed

Ian Grant Ian Grant was shot in the back of the head and his body was found on waste ground

A man arrested on suspicion of the murder of a doorman who was shot in the back of the head in 1995, has been released on bail.

The body of Ian Grant, 24, of Cherry Hinton, Cambridgeshire, was found on wasteland near Fulbourn Hospital.

Police re-opened the inquiry last week after forensic evidence described as a "significant breakthrough" came to light.

A 49-year-old arrested in Cambridge on Monday has been bailed until 18 March.

Mr Grant's body was found shortly after midnight on 15 November 1995.

Cambridgeshire Police said he had left his flat in nearby Speedwell Close the previous evening.

His girlfriend's car had been set alight outside their flat two weeks prior to his murder.

Detectives still believe that incident is linked to the killing.

Two men stood trial for Mr Grant's murder and were acquitted.

Investigators confirmed the man detained on Monday had not previously been arrested in connection with the case.
