Honington: Murder probe after stabbing at airbase

A man who was injured in an incident at a Suffolk airbase has died in hospital.

A MURDER inquiry has been launched after a man who received stab wounds at the RAF Honington airbase died last night.

The 23-year-old was found collapsed outside a property in Poplar Close on the airbase after police received reports of screaming around 1.50am on Wednesday.

The man had received stab wounds and was taken to the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds in a critical condition. He was later transferred to Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire where he died yesterday evening.

A 22-year-old woman from the Bury area was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after the incident and released on police bail yesterday to return to Bury Police Station on Wednesday, March 23.
