Five appeared in court this morning charged with murder and they have been remanded in custody until their next court appearance. The remaining five have been released on conditional bail whilst our investigation continues.

“It’s important to remember that Scarborough is, and remains, a safe place to live and work and incidents like this are thankfully very rare in our town. We are working hard to reassure residents, if you have any concerns, please let one of our Neighbourhood Police team know, visit the police station on Northway or dial 101.

“I’d like to thank those members of the public who have come forward to provide information so far. If you haven’t done so already, you can easily submit any information online via  our Major Incident Public Portal: mipp.police.uk/operation/12XN19A52-PO1
