A teenager has been arrested in connection with the murder of a 24-year-old man who was stabbed in Essex.

Hassan Mohammed, from Camberwell, south London, was stabbed twice in York Road, Southend, during the evening of 7 July.

A 17-year-old was arrested on Friday evening in Burdett Avenue, Westcliff and is being questioned by police.

Three other males, aged 17, 18 and 19 and from north London, arrested on Wednesday, are still helping police with inquiries and remain in custody.

In total 10 males have been arrested in connection with the stabbing.

Six, aged between 17 and 19, were arrested earlier in the week. Five of them have been released on bail while being investigated for the possession of an offensive weapon, while the sixth faces no action.

Det Ch Insp Simon Werrett said: "The response from the public has been great, but I would still urge anyone who has any information who has not yet spoken to us to contact us.

"We are particularly interested in any motorists who were in the York Road area around 7pm on Monday."

The results of a post-mortem examination into Mr Mohammed's death are yet to be released.
