Police are questioning two people they arrested as they investigate the alleged murder of a man at an Essex shopping centre.

A 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman have been arrested by Essex Police on suspicion of murder after a man died at the Lakeside shopping center in Thurrock on April 28.

Police were called at 4.30pm following reports of the attack but the man died at the scene.

Detective Chief Insp Ashley Howard said the investigation was continuing and that the force did not believe there was a “threat to the broader community” following the attack.
