A second 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder as police continue to investigate the death of a teenager.

The victim, also 15, was stabbed in Salt Hill Park on Saturday at about 6.30pm, police said.

It followed an altercation involving a group of men.

The boy received a stab wound and was pronounced dead at the scene, but has not yet been formally identified. A post mortem is scheduled for later on Sunday.

Police have now arrested two boys, both 15, on suspicion of murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Shearwood of Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit said: “This remains a fast-paced investigation, and a second boy has now been arrested in connection with it.

“There continues to be an increased police presence in Slough, and anyone with any questions or concerns is encouraged to talk to our officers.

“I would like to reiterate my appeal for anyone with any details about this incident to get in touch.

“We are continuing to gather information, and you could have evidence vital to our investigation.

“Anyone with any information should call us on 101, quoting reference number 1240 21/9.”
