Two men from London, aged 25 and 37, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently in police custody.
Senior Investigating Officer Andrew Mott said: “We deployed a significant number of resources to this incident and as a result, we’ve apprehended two men who ran away from the scene when we arrived.
“This is now a murder inquiry and the public will see a significantly increased police presence in the area with detectives and staff examining the scene and neighbourhood officers conducting extra reassurance patrols.
“Early indications are that this appears to be an isolated incident but I’d urge anyone with concerns to speak to one of the neighbourhood officers.”
