Police investigating the murder of a British satellite engineer gunned down in the French Alps along with his wife and mother-in-law have released an image of a male motorcyclist they want to speak to.
The French Gendarmerie have released an artist's impression of a motorcyclist they are trying to trace who was seen riding in the area between 3.15pm and 3.40pm on the day the murders took place.
They are appealing for who anyone who might recognise the man in the image to come forward.
50 year old Saad al-Hilli from Claygate in Surrey, his dentist wife Ikbal and her elderly mother Suhaila al-Allaf were murdered on a remote forest road near Lake Annecy in southern France on September 5, last year. French cyclist Sylvain Mollier was also killed.
Iraqi-born Mr al-Hilli's eldest daughter Zainab was shot, beaten and left for dead, but survived. Her four-year-old sister Zeena lay hidden under her mother's corpse and was only discovered eight hours after the murders.
Officers at the Surrey home of the French Alps shooting spree victims have confirmed items discovered were not hazardous and said neighbours evacuated from their houses could safely return. A police spokesman said:
The army bomb disposal team have left the house belonging to the al-Hilli family.
Residents living in two roads near the home of the al-Hilli family in Surrey have been evacuated from their homes and a team of army bomb disposal experts have arrived.

Police said in a statement: "Surrey Police can confirm that due to concerns around items found at the address ... officers have extended the cordon surrounding the property."Neighbours in the immediate area are being temporarily evacuated."
