A second man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering another man who died after being attacked twice within half an hour.

Jeff Henry, 39, from Cambridge, was left in a critical condition and died at Addenbrooke's Hospital on Friday. Post-mortem tests showed he died from head injuries.

A 29-year-old-man, of no fixed address, was arrested on Arbury Road on Monday.

A man arrested on Friday on suspicion of murder was released on bail.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said Mr Henry was seen running away from two men along Campkin Road in the direction of Arbury Road just moments before the attack on 6 June.

Detectives believe he was subject to two assaults that night, one at about 00:45 BST and another about 25 minutes beforehand.

It is thought Mr Henry might have attended the Strawberry Fair before the attacks.

Police said the first man arrested, a 36-year-old from County Galway, arrested at Holy Head Port, Anglesey, was due to answer bail on 18 August.

Det Insp Alan Page from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit described the attack on Mr Henry as "vicious and cowardly" and appealed for further witnesses to come forward.
