Det Supt Ian Simmons, from MCU, leading the investigation, said: “While we have made two further arrests in the case, we are continuing to appeal for anyone with any information to come forward.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who knew Kamil, had knowledge of his whereabouts in the lead up to July 1, or if you have any knowledge of the fields where his body was found.

“No matter how insignificant a piece of information seems, it could play a vital role in our investigation, so please get in touch.”

One man has been released on bail and the second was released under investigation, as police enquiries continue.

The 33-year-old had lived in Wellingborough for 10 years and searches had taken place in the town. A family tribute to Kamil released earlier this month said: “Kamil was a wonderful person and a wonderful brother.

“He was a cheerful and affectionate man.

"He loved his sister, and was always caring and supportive of her.
