The man, whose identity has not yet been revealed, was taken to Barnet Hospital where he died a short time later.

A post mortem will take place at the Lister Hospital this afternoon to establish a cause of death.

The arrested pair, both in their 40s, are being questioned at Hatfield Police Station.

Officers remain at the scene while further investigations take place.
