Police have questioned a man over the death of a British dancer at an Australian strip club.

Stacey Tierney was found dead in mysterious circumstances at Dreams Gentlemen’s Club in Melbourne on 19 December.

The 29-year-old fitness instructor from Manchester moved to Australia in 2013.

According to Australian media reports at the time, Miss Tierney worked at the club and had spent the previous evening drinking with several men who fled the scene without calling for help.

Police believed Miss Tierney’s body lay undiscovered for up to 12 hours.

Victoria Police said officers arrested a 33-year-old Melbourne man on suspicion of perjury on Tuesday as part of the investigation.

The suspect, who has not been named, was released on bail pending further inquiries.

After her death, Miss Tierney’s family described the zumba instructor as “the most amazing, special, caring person you could ever meet”.

Her cousin Colleen Sarah said: “Stacey was living her life to the full in Australia and she has made a huge impact on everyone who knew her.”
