A year after a pensioner was murdered in Northampton, police are making a new appeal to catch his killers.

David Brickwood was repeatedly stabbed at his home on Lindsay Avenue last September. Detectives believe the 74 year old was targeted because he kept money in the house and he was the victim of a botched burglary.

DI Louise Hemingway from Northants Police is convinced that somone knows who the killer is

"I think this was a planned robbery at David's house so I think people have talked about it before they've gone to David's house but I also think people have almost certainly talked about it afterwards particularly when they've realised the level of injury that they've caused to David and the fact that he died. I need somebody who knows information about what happened to David that night, who did this to him, I need them to come and talk to us."
