"I have assured her of my total commitment to ensuring that whoever was responsible for this senseless killing will be brought to justice."

DCI John added: "I continue to appeal for anyone with information and any witnesses to come forward and speak with police. If they would prefer to remain anonymous, they can also contact the independent charity, Crimestoppers.

"We have already received a good deal of information from local people, but it is important that anyone who has yet to speak with us makes contact to share what they know.

"I also need to see any footage that may have been captured from phones, dashcams or other devices. If you have such material, please get in touch."

Any witnesses with helpful information are advised to call the police on 101 and quote 5579/18FEB or speak anonymously to Crimestoppers on 080 055 5111.
