Teen held over cemetery murder

An 18-year-old man is being questioned on suspicion of murdering a 14-year-boy in a cemetery.

Police said the "savage and brutal" attack on Jordan Watson had shocked officers working on the case in Carlisle, Cumbria.

Jordan's body was discovered by a member of the public in the grounds of a church on Tuesday.

A post-mortem examination showed the teenager, from nearby Ridley Road, died from multiple wounds caused by a sharp implement.
