A Gloucestershire man aged in his 50s arrested on suspicion of murder remains in police custody today.

Police have been granted a further 24 hours to question the man in custody after an extension was granted this morning by a district judge at magistrates court.

The man aged in his 40s who suffered multiple stab wounds remains at Southmead Hospital in Bristol in a critical but stable condition.

"I would like to take a moment to thank the local community for their continued support and cooperation throughout what is an extremely traumatic time for everyone involved.
