Det Ch Insp Tony Heydon, who is continuing the hunt for George’s murderer, said: "Over the years we have had people calling in with information in relation to George’s murder, but we are still keen to hear from anyone who hasn’t come forward before.
"Those who have previously spoken to the police if they wish to corroborate their accounts or anyone out there who has information which they may previously have thought to be of little relevance is also asked to contact us.
"I would also be keen to hear from anyone who was in the local licensing industry in the 60s, other landlords, or even older residents who still live in the area.
"People do change alliances, and it may be someone you knew many years ago arrived home on 8 September 1963 acting out of character or even gave you information about what had happened.
We need to hear from you, and I would urge you to contact us.

In a statement released today, George’s daughter Margaret, who was six at the time of the murder, and son David, who was 10, said:
Every time there is an appeal we hope there is going to be something new, or that someone will genuinely come forward and tell the police what happened.
Our mother died in 1997, without ever knowing who did this or why. No motive has ever been established. Over the years Mum was able to talk about what happened to Dad, and she re-lived it a lot.
Whoever did this robbed us of our Dad. We would really like to know who did this for our own peace of mind, even if the offender is dead.
Many years have passed, but if you know who did it, or have any new information, please speak to the police and give us some closure.

Twenty minutes after he left, at around 12.50am, his wife Betty heard Blackie barking in the alleyway next to the pub. When she went outside to investigate, she found him lying facedown on the ground with 13 stab wounds to his face, neck, head and back.

A Nottinghamshire PC, Deiderik Coetzee, otherwise known as ‘Robocop’ is retiring on medical grounds at the end of this month.
Coetzee won a formal citation in 2005 after making over 300 arrests in single year on his patrol in the Ladywood estate, Mansfield. This achievement also gained him the nickname ‘robocop’.
Coetzee was left with severe head injuries following a hit-and-run incident in November 2011. The driver of the car, Mitchel Graham, was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to dangerous driving, failing to stop after the incident, and failing to report it.

When we call 999 most of us don't think twice about giving our name, address and telephone number. But what if we had a speech impairment ? Giving that information could take several minutes - potentially vital in a life-or-death situation.
Now with the help of a former paralympian, Nottinghamshire Police think they've come up with a solution to the problem. Phil Brewster reports.
Chief Inspector Tracey Lovegrove, from Nottinghamshire Police, says the new 'Pegasus' system will make emergency response much faster. The PIN database will benefit those that have trouble communicating when they ring 999.
The man who invented the new emergency services system for Nottinghamshire says he decided to create it after phone operators thought he was a nuisance caller.
Christopher Channon has difficulty with speech, so thought of the 'Pegasus' system to help others who struggle to communicate when dialling 999.
The system works by saying the word 'Pegasus', followed by a unique PIN, which will allow the phone operator to see all of the caller's details straight away.

They mistook me for a nuisance caller, and that got me thinking because luckily enough it was not a life or death situation, but what if it was?
When you make a 999 call, you have to give your name and address before you get to the problem. For some people, that can take several minutes, and they could be in danger from the first word.
