A 14-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a man who was found with stab wounds to his chest.

The victim was found by paramedics in Hawksley Road in the Hyson Green area of the city at about 17:40 GMT on Wednesday, police said.

He was taken to hospital for treatment but the Nottinghamshire force said he died a short time later.

The detained boy remains in police custody.

A number of roads in the area have been cordoned off while investigations take place.

Det Insp Justine Wilson said: "We currently have a full team who will work around the clock to uncover who's responsible for this despicable crime.

"We believe this is an isolated attack, unconnected to recent incidents in other areas, and there is no further threat to the wider public."
