A murder investigation has been launched after a man was fatally stabbed in Chelmsford.

Police were called to Cromar Way just before 1am this morning and found a man, in his 40s, severely injured at the scene.

He was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead just after 2am.

Three men, aged 40, 53 and 59, and a 53-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The 53-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of Class A drugs.

Essex Police says an alleyway near Meteor Way has been closed as part of the investigation and may impact pedestrians in the area or those attending Essex County Cricket Club.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 101, quoting reference 54 of 22/06.
