A MAN has been arrested by police investigating the murder of a man in a rural bungalow in East Yorkshire.

The 26-year-old is being held in custody by Humberside Police in connection with the killing of a man, believed to be in his 50s, who was found dead at Whisker Cottage in Full Sutton last Thursday.

The house was owned by Peter Battle, a 56-year-old antiques dealer who had previously worked for businesses in York, but police have yet to formally identify the dead man and are unsure when he was killed.
