Police have urged people to think about the actions of their loved ones as they continue to hunt the killer of a Wisbech pensioner.

Una Crown was stabbed to death and set on fire at her home at Magazine Lane exactly a year ago today.

A £10,000 reward is on offer for information which leads to the conviction of the 86-year-old's killer but no one has yet been charged.Today, Cambridgeshire Police issued a fresh appeal.

Det Ch Insp Jon Hutchinson said the investigation was still "very active" and the force was determined to find the person responsible.

He added: "I would urge people to think back to this time a year ago, did a friend or loved one come home with blood on them or smelling of smoke?

"Were they acting strangely around that time? Did they suddenly come into money?

"Any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, could prove crucial to solving this terrible crime and giving some closure to Mrs Crown's family who are desperate for answers."
