A man suspected of an horrific doorstep murder walked into a Fylde coast police station to hand himself in.

David Bond, 50, of Osmonde Close, Worthing, was found dead on Tuesday afternoon. A knife was found nearby.

His lodger Alan Knight, 51, walked into Fleetwood police station in the early hours of Friday morning saying he was wanted by Sussex Police.

Police say he has been staying at a hotel in the area.

He has been arrested on suspicion of murder, but was taken to hospital under police guard for treatment for what are thought to be self-inflicted injuries. He is due to return to Sussex for questioning when he is released.

A post mortem conducted showed Mr Bond suffered multiple stab wounds.

His mother Anne Manley-Rollings said: “He was always happy, cheerful and he enjoyed life.”

Step-father Sonny added: “He was a gentle giant, kind as well and he liked to help others.”

House-to-house enquiries are continuing in the area.
