Two women have been arrested after a man was stabbed and died at a house in the early hours of the morning.

Hertfordshire Police were called to Saturn Way in Hemel Hempstead, at about 02:20 GMT.

Officers said the victim, who has been named locally as David Molloy, was treated by paramedics, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

A woman in her 40s, from Tring, and a woman in her 30s, from Hemel Hempstead, are in police custody.

A police cordon was put in place outside the three-storey house and the victim's family were being supported by specialist officers.

Floral tributes have been left at the scene in tribute to the victim, who is believed to be in his early 20s.

One message described him as a "top bloke", while another said he will be "missed by so many people".
