STATEMENT: Waltham Abbey murder investigation
Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing has issued the following statement:
"Very sadly, a young man has been murdered today on the outskirts of Waltham Abbey near the motorway.
"Our local police have taken immediate and decisive action and I am grateful to them for all they are doing to track down the killer.
"I understand that the initial incident took place at the Marriott Hotel but the man died further down the road near the Volunteer pub.
"There is nothing to suggest that this has anything to do with terrorism. It would appear that the two men were known to each other."
