A third man has been arrested over the murder of a Nottinghamshire man at his home.

Colin Hall, 76, died in hospital following an attack on Cornerpin Drive in Kirkby-in-Ashfield on 10 February.

A 39-year-old man was arrested by Nottinghamshire Police on Friday evening and will be questioned by detectives about Mr Hall's death.

Two men arrested earlier in connection with the death have both been released without charge.

Det Insp Mat Healey said: "This is a significant development in the inquiry but we still need you to get in touch if you saw anything unusual at the time."
