Police in Cambridgeshire say they have reached another dead end in the search for the killer of a schoolboy in 1994.

Three years ago detectives re-opened their investigation into the death of six-year-old Rikki Neave in Peterborough. One man was arrested but later released without charge.

Following a review by the Crown Prosecution Service, police say they have "no further active lines of enquiry".

"It is frustrating that despite three years of detailed investigations we are not able to tell Rikki’s family what happened on the day of his murder but we will not give up hope to do so one day."
