The family of a grandmother are appealing for information to find her killer.

Eileen Blane was attacked at her own home in Stretford, one year ago.

The 87 year old was assaulted before her wedding ring was snatched from her hand.

She spent eight weeks in hospital before dying as a result of her injuries. Police are offering a £50,000 reward for any information that leads to a conviction.

Eileen's sons, John and David, have spoken about their loss.
