Man arrested in-connection with murder of Mark Bradbury Date published: 5th September 2019 2.44pm

Detectives investigating the death of Warrington man Mark Bradbury have arrested a man on suspicion of his murder.

The 39 year-old from Warrington was arrested this morning (Thursday 5 September) and has been taken into custody to be questioned.

It’s been just over a month since Mark was last seen near his home on Station Road South at 5pm on Thursday 1 August. He was found at his address three days later at 10pm on Sunday 4 August having suffered significant head injuries.

Since the investigation was launched, a vast amount of work has been undertaken with a number of lines of enquiry carried out by a dedicated team of officers.

Detectives still believe the local community holds the key to identifying those responsible and are encouraging people to come forward with any information they have regarding Mark or who were in the vicinity of Station Road during those times.

Detective Inspector Sarah Oliver, of Cheshire Police’s Major Investigation Team, said: “I hope today’s arrest reassures the public that we will not rest until we have found those responsible for Mark’s murder.

“While this man remains in custody to be questioned I am still appealing to the local community to get in touch if they knew Mark or were in the area of Station Road through the weekend after 1 August.

“I know people may sometimes worry about speaking to the police, but there are other ways of helping us, such as through the Crimestoppers charity with which you can give information anonymously.”

Patrols will be in the area over the next few days following today’s arrest, and the community is encouraged to speak to officers if they have any concerns.
