DCI Nikki Mayo, who is the Senior Investigating Officer in the enquiry, said: “We believe that two teenage girls went to Mr Broxholme’s aid after the incident.

"We would very much like to hear from them and talk to them to see if they have any information that could assist with the enquiry.

“I would like to appeal directly to them both to contact us because the information they have could help us build up a bigger picture of what happened to Mr Broxholme."

Police say further tests are needed to uncover whether the injuries he sustained in the robbery led to his death.
