The man, a 38-year-old from Colchester, was arrested by police in Cowdray Avenue yesterday afternoon.

Earlier today detectives got permission from magistrates to hold him for a further 36 hours for questioning.

Senior officers say the man was arrested in connection with the case, but made it clear this did not mean the murderer had been caught.

Mr Attfield’s body was found by a passer-by close to Lower Castle Park in the early hours of Saturday morning with 102 stab wounds.

Efforts by paramedics to revive Mr Attfield, 33, of East Bay, Colchester, failed.
