A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was fatally stabbed at a house party in Bradford.

The 47-year-old was arrested by police in the Manningham area of the city on Sunday night.

Marek Benak, 23, was found dead in the early hours of Thursday by officers responding to reports of a disturbance on Great Horton Road.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Benak, originally from Slovakia, had died from a single stab wound.

A 42-year-old man, arrested last week on suspicion of murder, has been released without charge.
