A man has been arrested in connection with the death of 30-year-old Stephen Morrison in Epping.

Mr Morrison died on Tuesday June 23 after he was stabbed in a car park between the Robin Hood and Wakes Arms roundabouts on Epping New Road.

Following the stop of a vehicle in Hackney at 4pm on Friday July 3, a 34-year-old man was arrested by the Metropolitan Police.

Two other people, a man and a woman, who were arrested in the early hours of yesterday morning, have both been released on bail until Tuesday July 28.

Detectives still want to hear from anyone who was in the area of Epping New Road between 3pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday June 23 and saw or heard any suspicious or unusual behaviour, along with anyone who was driving in the area and has dashcam footage.
