Detectives investigating the murder of 59-year-old Michael Griffiths in West Sussex on Thursday last week will be asking for help from walkers and drivers in Fernhurst this morning. Police will be talking to people around Mr Griffiths's home in Old Glebe from 6.30am.

Detective Chief Inspector Jeff Riley from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said: "We are hoping that by talking to people who regular use the roads and footpaths around Michael's house, we might nudge someone's memory about something that just wasn't quite normal or usual."
