A teenager suspected of being involved in an Essex murder has now been arrested in Amsterdam.

Essex Police said the 18-year-old identified as Bradley Blundell went to a police station in the Netherlands and was subsequently held.

He has been arrested on suspicion of murder, perverting the course of justice, handling stolen goods and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Documentation is reportedly being organised in order to extradite the teenager to the UK.

Previously police had offered a reward of up to £10,000 for information which could assist officers in arresting Blundell, who is from Chelmsford.

A 34-year-old man named John Pordage passed away after he was shot at a Chelmsford petrol station in August last year.

He was hit in the chest and died in hospital, according to Sky News.

His mother Sue Wilson said he had "many dreams and plans for his future" and had a "big impact on people's lives."

Pordage's sister also said her "life fell apart" after the death of her brother.
