POLICE have arrested a fifth person on suspicion of murder after a man died after a serious assault.

A 30-year-old is the latest to be detained after a 57-year-old man was attacked at a home in Thorpe, on the outskirts of Leeds.

The deceased - a man who has not been named - was allegedly the victim of a gang attack. It's thought that they smashed their way into a property last Saturday.

He sustained head injuries and died in hospital on Sunday morning.

A 16-year-old male and a 40-year-old man, who were arrested in Doncaster and Wombwell, have been released on bail.

Another 16-year-old and a woman, aged 37, were also arrested in the Bentley area of Doncaster earlier this week and remain in police custody.
