“A man has been brutally murdered and we are committed to bringing whoever attacked him to justice.
“There were some young people on the common that afternoon and cyclists passing by and I would ask anyone who was in that area, between 3.30pm and 5pm on Wednesday, to come forward and help us get justice for Peter and his loved ones.
