Police say they've arrested a 31-year-old man in Cheshire on suspicion of Hart's murder.
Greater Manchester Police have arrested a 31-year-old man in relation to the death of Robert Hart, who died at Parklife festival.
Hart was punched at the festival on Saturday, June 7th. He was knocked unconscious and taken to hospital, where he died from his injuries on Wednesday, June 11th. Police launched an appeal for witnesses, before Parklife organisers offered a £20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
The Manchester Evening News reports that a 31-year-old man was arrested in Cheshire on Saturday, June 21st, on suspicion of Hart's murder.
Greater Manchester Police Detective Inspector Richard Eales said: "Over the last two weeks, we have received a huge amount support by both the public and the media for the appeal to help find the person responsible. We now have a man in custody but that doesn’t mean the investigation is at an end. We are continuing to investigate and we are renewing our appeal for information or any relevant footage."
Parklife festival director Sacha Lord-Marchionne told M.E.N: "We're delighted someone has been arrested. Robert’s death didn’t just devastate his family, it touched 70,000 people who attended the event. I cannot begin to imagine what his family are going through. I think, as is always the way in Manchester whenever there is a tragedy, the whole community has come together."
