Ten men from Essex have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a second man died near the V Festival in Chelmsford.

The 39-year-old was found in the back garden of a house on London Road yesterday (August 19) after a private party was held opposite the festival site at Hylands Park. A post-mortem examination has given the preliminary result that he died of head injuries.

The arrested men, aged between 23 and 35, remain in custody for questioning. Police want to speak to guests who were at the party . The man's next of kin have also been informed.

If anyone has information that they would like to pass on anonymously you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Meanwhile, police have named the 22-year-old who was found dead in a tent at the Staffordshire festival site over the weekend as Timothy Brockhurst. He was unresponsive and was given immediate first aid, but was later pronounced dead.

Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious. The area where Brockhurst was found was sealed off for forensic examination and detailed statements were taken from his friends.

Meanwhile The Stone Roses closed last night's proceedings at the V Festival in Weston Park while The Killers rounded off events in Chelmsford.
