A tragic series of events unfolded in Nottingham, a city in the English midlands, as three individuals were discovered dead in separate incidents. British police have arrested a 31-year-old man on suspicion of murder, following reports that a van had attempted to run over three other people.

Initially, two victims were found deceased in the city centre. Shortly after 4am local time, police were alerted to another incident nearby, where a van had tried to hit three individuals.
