Sadly, a man in his thirties, died at the scene. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by officers.
A man, aged 33, from Oxfordshire has been arrested on suspicion of murder. He remains in custody at this time.

“Our thoughts go to his family and friends at this very difficult time.
“We are conducting thorough enquiries in order to establish what has happened and one man has been arrested.
