(The Independent)

A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was killed in a double stabbing on a beach in Bournemouth.

Two women from Poole were stabbed on Durley Chine Beach at around 11.45pm on Friday, in an incident which saw large areas of the seafront cordoned off to shocked residents for much of the bank holiday weekend.

A 34-year-old woman – named locally as Amie Gray – died at the scene while a 38-year-old woman sustained serious injuries and remains in hospital.

Heartfelt tributes to Amie described her as a “wonderful human being” who “didn’t have any enemies”, as friends told The Independent they were in shock over her death.

In an update on Tuesday night, Dorset Police said they had arrested a man from south London.

The force said: “Following extensive enquiries, a 20-year-old man from the Croydon area of London has been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.”

Intelligence and firearms officers worked with the Metropolitan Police to arrest the man in London, the force said.

A 17-year-old boy from Lancashire arrested at an early stage of the investigation was later released without charge and had been “eliminated from inquiries” following investigations over the weekend, Dorset Police said on Monday.
