A major police search is underway in Lincolnshire for the body of a suspected killer involved in the fatal shooting of a jeweller ten years ago.
Detectives are scouring farmland for the body of James Brodie, who police wanted to speak to after the murder of Marian Bates - shot dead shielding her daughter from armed raiders at her shop.
James Brodie has not been seen since the murder of Marian Bates in 2003. Police say he is a suspect in the killing - but believe he too has since died. They have carried out a number of searches over the years and say they haven't given hope of finding out what happened to him.
Here's Detective Chief Inspector Rob Griffin from the East Midlands Major Crime and Homicide Unit.
