Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder over the death of a man found with a knife in his chest at his home 20 years ago.

Richard Miles, 29, was found stabbed in his garden near Stonehouse, Gloucestershire in March 1993.

At his inquest, the coroner recorded an open verdict due to a lack of evidence about the stabbing.

The men, a 53-year-old from Quedgeley and a 44-year-old from Longford, have been bailed until December.

A 66-year-old man from Stonehouse, arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, was also bailed.

Mr Miles's body was found by his mother on 10 March 1993. The knife had come from his own kitchen.

His death prompted a murder inquiry which saw the case feature on the BBC's Crimewatch programme and a reward of £10,000 offered.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said the force had received information relating to Mr Miles' death, and inquiries were ongoing.

He said that "as such, officers are now revisiting specific aspects" of the murder inquiry.
