Although a man has been charged with murder as a result of this investigation, I would once again like to reiterate the fact that we still remain keen to hear from anyone who believes they may have information that could relate to Mr Barlow’s death.
In addition, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have come forward with information so far, while I’d also like to thank local people for their understanding and support as our officers have gone about their investigative work in the Reabrook Avenue area in the past few days.
