Two men arrested in connection with a murder in Bury St Edmunds have been released from bail, but remain under investigation.

The men were arrested after the fatal stabbing of 47-year-old Neil Charles on a residential street back in June.

Mr Charles was found with serious injuries in Winsford Road in the early hours of Sunday, June 20.

He was taken to hospital for treatment, but police later confirmed he had died and a murder investigation was launched.

A Home Office post-mortem examination found Mr Charles died of a single stab wound to the chest.
