Detectives are renewing their appeal for information a year after the remains of a man from Oldbury, who had been missing since 2008, were found close to the M54 in Shropshire.

Surjit Takhar was 37 when he was reported missing from his home in October 2008. He was last seen by his family nine days before and a detailed investigation was carried out at the time of his disappearance.

Nearly seven years later maintenance workers found his remains at the bottom of an embankment next to the slip road of junction 4 of the M54 in Telford on 20 August 2015.

Now detectives are re-appealing for information which will help uncover how the father if three died.
