PO­LICE in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of Josh Han­son ar­rested a man at Gatwick Air­port on sus­pi­cion of per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice and as­sist­ing an of­fender.

Mr Han­son, 21, from Kings­bury, was fa­tally stabbed at RE Bar in East­cote in the early hours of Sun­day Oc­to­ber 11.

De­tec­tives put out an ap­peal for help to find Shane O’Brien who they want to speak to in con­nec­tion with the in­quiry.

He was taken into cus­tody at a Lon­don po­lice sta­tion and has been bailed un­til mid-Novem­ber.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about his where­abouts can call the in­ci­dent room on 020 8785 8099 or con­tact Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111 or via crimestop­
