Four men were being held on suspicion of murder today after a young man was fatally wounded at his home.
The 23-year-old victim, who has not been named, died from a single puncture wound to his stomach, a post-mortem examination found.

The victim was admitted to Wexham Park Hospital where he was pronounced dead more than an hour later, Thames Valley Police said.
Four men, aged 23, 26 and two aged 30, were arrested shortly afterwards and are being held in police custody for questioning.
Three men are from the Slough area and the fourth is from west London. All four are believed to have known the victim, police disclosed.
