Police are to re-open their investigation into the murder of a grandmother 15 years ago, in an attempt to bring her killer to justice. Fifty nine year old Winnie Deighton was found dying on land near her home in Thornton Road, on June 10, 1997.

She had been kicked six times in the head, suffering brain damage, before she was dragged across open ground, sexually assaulted and strangled. Now, Humberside Police's Major Incident Team hopes the public will play a role in bringing her killer to justice.
