Police believe the incident happened in the Woodlands Road area of Earlswood, near Redhill, and there will be an increased police presence in the area as officers seek to establish more details.

Detective Inspector Jackie Elkins said:


“While clearly a shocking incident, I want to be reassure the community that these men knew each other and there is no wider risk to the general public. I want to thank the local community for their support and assistance as we conduct a thorough investigation of what happened and bring those responsible to justice.

I would ask people who may know these men not to speculate publicly, but instead to contact us to help us build a picture of who they are and why this has happened.”

Anyone who has any information that could assist the investigation, either because they know the individuals involved, or because they witnessed something in the Woodlands road area of Earlswood last night, is asked to please contact Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or http://surrey.police.uk/TellUsMore quoting reference PR/45190008252.
