Detectives investigating the death of a licensee have made an arrest.

Officers from Kent and Essex serious crime directorate investigating the death of licensee Joe Daniels, from the Red Cow Pub in Foord Road, Folkestone, Kent, have made an arrest.

A 23-year-old man from Canterbury was arrested on Wednesday 31 January in connection with the incident, which happened inside the pub Wednesday 22 November last year, according to police.

Found unresponsive

A spokesman for Kent Police said: "On that day, our officers were called to the scene at around 11.30am. Mr Daniels, 58, was found unresponsive shortly before.

"He had suffered an injury consistent with a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene. A firearm was also recovered."

Last week, Kent Police said they received an "excellent response" to a media appeal and CCTV image of a man believed to have information connected with the death of a pub landlord.

The man arrested remains in police custody as enquiries continue.
