Mystery caller in Rubery investigation

Police investigating the murder of Barry Rubery at his home in Iron Acton more than three years ago say they've been contacted three times by an anonymous caller who may hold vital information.

Detectives say the calls were made shortly after the murder of the 68 year old in April 2010, then in January 2012 and most recently in June of this year.

Police in South Gloucestershire say they would like urgently to speak to whoever left the messages.
