A man has been arrested over the killing of a father-of-three who was stabbed to death on his doorstep.

The 30-year-old, from Knowle West in Bristol, is being held on suspicion of the murder of Barry Wilson.

Mr Wilson, 29, died after he was knifed in a fight outside his home in Ilminster Avenue, Knowle West, on Tuesday afternoon.

A police spokeswoman said the man was being held at a police station in the city and would be questioned later.

The stabbing is the second in Bristol since a nationwide knife amnesty was launched last week.

Mr Wilson had spent the day at an anti-crime family fun day organised by the police and drinking in a local social club.

His partner Maxine Prescott is pregnant with the couple's fourth child.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Avon and Somerset Police or Crimestoppers.
