A man who was arrested in connection with the death of Jess Smith has been released on bail.

The 57-year-old man from Burwell was arrested yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

He was released on conditional bail to return to Huntingdon Police Station on February 3.
