Justice for Jay: family demands the truth

The family of a father-of-two, killed in Brighton 15 years ago, are calling for a full public inquiry into the unsolved case.

Jay Abatan - who was 42 - was attacked outside The Ocean Rooms nightclub on Morley Street in January 1999 as he waited for a taxi. He died from head injuries five days later. No-one has ever been convicted.

Jay's brother says he's lost faith in Sussex Police after hearing there was a serving officer in the club that night. Tonight the police told us there is no evidence to suggest the off-duty officer was aware of the attack or involved in any way. Malcolm Shaw has our report.
