Two women arrested after man killed at Loampit Hill brothel

The Evening Standard reports that a man has been killed at a brothel located above a row of shops on Loampit Hill. Police were called to the address in the early hours of this morning and the two women present at the address at the time were arrested on suspicion of murder. The Standard says:

One witness said the flat was run as a brothel and a number of eastern European women were said to live or work at the address. The witness said the murder was a "row over money". A CCTV camera had been installed outside the premises which allowed people inside to see who was coming in. 

 Scotland Yard said it believed it knew the identity of the victim but was trying to trace his family. Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

BC Twitter followers reported that a large stretch of Loampit Hill was cordoned off this morning.
