The victim suffered stab wounds.

One resident said this evening (Tuesday) that she used to work very close to 2 Cedar Way but had never been aware of any trouble or disturbance.

Curious local residents could be seen visiting the scene to observe police activity. One young woman was heard to say: “I have been here all day watching the goings on.”

So far there has been no appeal from police for witnesses other than for the missing residents to come forward..

A police officer manning the cordon said she had no idea how long Stoughton Road and Cedar Way would remain closed.

Local councillor for Stoke Ward, Zoe Franklin, said this evening: “I was deeply saddened by news of the tragic incident that took place this morning. My sympathies are with the victim’s family and friends.

“I hope that at this difficult time they will be given the space that they need to come to terms with the events and emotions of today.”
