Police investigating the murder of the brother of Damage singer Jade Jones more than 17 years ago have offered a £30,000 reward to find his killer.

Jones' brother John Kennedy was stabbed during a fight outside the Railway Arms pub in Shadwell, east London, on February 7, 1997 and died in hospital the next day.

The 31-year-old's killer has never been found and Met Police launched a fresh appeal following a review of the case.

Officers are eager to trace the author of an anonymous note handed in Shadwell Town Hall describing the stabbing.

Detective Chief Inspector John Sandlin, of the Metropolitan Police Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "His family have lived for 17 years now with the heartache of not seeing anyone behind bars for John's murder and they deserve to see justice done."

Anyone with information should contact the incident room on 020 8345 3865 or 07785 555969.
