Murder investigation, Berrow

Avon & Somerset Police have started an investigation into the death of a man in Berrow last night. In what Police have described as an “isolated incident” an ambulance was called at around 9.15 last night. When they arrived at the property in Berrow they found a man with serious wounds. Shortly afterwards, sadly, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been informed. A post mortem and formal identification will be carried out shortly.

For the time being the Police cordon will remain around the house where the incident took place. This will allow the Police to carry on with their enquiries. Additional patrols will be carried out in the area to reassure the public. Anyone with concerns about the incident is asked to talk to those officers on patrol.

A woman has been arrested and she remains in Police custody.

The Police are appealing for any witnesses with information that may help our enquiries to come forward. You can call 101 and give the call-handler reference 5221032125.”
