A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a man found stabbed in the street in Chelmsford.

Lee Evans, 47, was found injured in Cromar Way just before 1am on June 22 and was pronounced dead around an hour later after being taken to hospital.

Essex Police said a 19-year-old man from Chelmsford was arrested on suspicion of murder in the early hours of Friday.

He is currently in custody.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Evans, from Burnham, suffered multiple stab wounds and the cause of death was a stab wound to the chest.

In a written tribute, Mr Evans' family described him as a "kind, protective and loving person" who "idolised his son, and loved his nephews".

Four people who were arrested on suspicion of murder on June 22 were released from custody the next day.

Three men, aged 40, 53, and 59, and a 53-year-old woman face no further action based on the evidence currently available, police said.
