Police have named a 61-year-old man who died following a stabbing.

Hertfordshire Police was called to Walden End, Stevenage, at 23:53 BST on Wednesday.

The force said Peter Lynch was taken to hospital with suspected stab wounds and died later.

A 34-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder and has since been released on police bail.

Det Insp Lee Martin said: "Our thoughts are with Peter’s family at this very difficult time.
