Speaking about arrests, Detective Chief Inspector with Lincolnshire Police Martin Holvey said: “Post-mortem examinations will be carried out in due course but again I still need to speak to anyone with any information that might be relevant from Dawson Avenue.”

He went on to say that the incident most likely happened between midday on Wednesday and noon on Friday.
