A murder probe has been launched after a man was stabbed in the smoking area of a bar in Milton Keynes.

The 28-year-old man died in hospital today following the attack at Atesh at about 1.30am on Monday.

“We are aware that this altercation started within the venue and continued outside to the smoking area.
