Detectives investigating the murder of 26-year-old Michael Gilbert, whose decapitated body was found in the Blue Lagoon in Arlesey on Sunday, have arrested two men on suspicion of his murder.

The men, aged 22 and 24 are both from Luton and are currently being questioned at Luton Police Station.

DCI Jon Humphries, from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "While we have made these arrests I would stress that this is still a 'live' investigation and we are still actively seeking people with information about Michael's death to contact us.

"I would also urge anyone who may have seen Michael in recent weeks to contact us so that we can start to piece together the last few days of his life."

Anyone with information should contact the Operation Pinlock Incident Room on 01707 355959 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
