Police have secured a closure order on an address in Hatfield.

The property is a flat in St Peters Close, which is linked to a murder being investigated by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit.

St Albans Magistrates' Court granted the closure order on Tuesday. It means that nobody, except the occupant, can enter the property for three months and anyone who breaches this will be arrested.

At 1.25am on Monday, June 10, the ambulance service contacted police to report that a man had sustained stab wounds at a block of flats in St Peters Close.
