The young man who was wanted as the main suspect for the murder of three women in England, two daughters and the wife of BBC journalist and commentator John Hunt, has been arrested.

Kyle Clifford, 26, who is believed to have served in the British Army for around a year, was named as a suspect by Hertfordshire Police following the deaths of Carol Hunt, 61, and her two daughters, Hannah, 28, and Louise , aged 25, at a property in Bushey.

A statement from Hertfordshire Police said Clifford was found in Enfield, near a property that was searched earlier in the day as part of the search.

The 26-year-old man was sent to the hospital for medical treatment after it was found that he had injuries on his body, while during the intervention of the police to arrest him, no gunshots were fired.

It is suspected that the suspect was known to the victims.

Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "It is an incredibly difficult time for the family of the victims and we will ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened happened

"Following extensive enquiries, the suspect has been located and no one else is being sought in connection with the investigation at this time," she added, according to the BBC.

Carol, Hannah and Louise Hunt, were found seriously injured at the home in Ashlyn Close at around 7pm on Tuesday and later died at the scene.
