Man Arrested In Connection To Portsmouth Beach Torso

A man has been arrested in connection with the discovery of a torso on a Portsmouth beach.

The body, without head, arms and legs, was found by a group of foreign students at Southsea shortly before 17:30 on Tuesday.

Police said the body had now been identified and officers were informing next of kin.

A 46-year-old from the Portsmouth area was arrested on Thursday night and remains in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Dick Pearson said: "At this stage only a torso has been discovered.

"Other body parts or items linked to the murder may have been discarded in the area."

Police have urged anyone who notices suspicious packages, possibly wrapped in black bin liners, in the area to contact them immediately.

A post-mortem examination carried out on Wednesday was unable to determine an exact cause of death, but a police spokeswoman said the victim had been "subjected to a sustained and violent assault".
