Four boys and a girl, aged between 13 and 14, have been arrested by police investigating the murder of a 13-year-old young boy.
The five teenagers are currently being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder after a 13-year-old boy was found stabbed to death in Reading.
Emergency services were called to Bugs Bottom fields, Emmer Green, just before 4 pm on Sunday.
This followed reports of a fatal stabbing.
A boy, who has not yet been named, was discovered at the fields suffering knife inflicted injuries.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown, head of Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit, said: ‘This remains a very active investigation and a large scene-watch remains in place. ‘We have arrested five young people in connection with this tragic incident, but I would urge anybody who has any information surrounding what happened yesterday to please make contact with Thames Valley Police.’ Police last night called the incident ‘shocking’ and vowed to leave ‘no stone unturned’ in the investigation.
