A man has been arrested by police in Germany on suspicion of the murder of an internet gaming enthusiast in Nottingham. Matthew Pyke, 20, was found stabbed in his flat above the Orange Tree pub on North Sherwood Street on Friday.
A 21-year-old man from Limburg was arrested on Wednesday in Hunfelden by officers from West-Hessen Police. Officers in England and Germany said the arrested man knew the victim through an online games forum.
Mr Pyke, originally from Stowmarket in Suffolk, ran a web forum for the Nintendo game Advanced Wars on which gamers could chat online with each other about tactics, characters and plots.
