Four people have been arrested and remain in police custody as investigations continue.

We are fortunate that crime is generally low in High Wycombe. An incident such as this is of great shock and sorrow to our community.

We believe the people involved were known to one another and we are treating this as an isolated incident.

I would like to thank the public and businesses for their cooperation and patience as police continue to investigate the tragic death of an individual.

I would also ask that anyone who has any information about what has happened to contact police via the 24-hour 101 number as soon as possible.

Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone with information about the incident that could help with their enquiries to please call the 24 hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
