A murder investigation has been launched in Hull after a 51-year-old man was discovered stabbed to death in his home.

The body of Keith Opray was found at his house on Wareham Close, Bransholme, at about 15:15 GMT on Saturday.

A post-mortem examination has revealed he died from multiple stab wounds, Humberside Police said.

A 44-year-old man has been arrested in connection with Mr Opray's death and has been released on bail.

A force spokesman said it was known the victim left the Mecca bingo hall on Clough Road, Hull, at 21:26 GMT on Thursday 23 January and took a taxi home.

But after this time there are no further confirmed sightings of him.

Police would like to speak to the taxi driver who drove Mr Opray home and anyone else who saw him after he left the bingo hall on Thursday.

Members of Mr Opray's family are being supported by specially trained liaison officers, said police.
