Officers will be in Lindsay Avenue and the surrounding area between 10pm tonight and 2am tomorrow, to speak to local people and identify any witnesses who may have been in the area last week but have yet to speak to the investigation team.

Detective Chief Inspector Mick Graham, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have spoken to a lot of people during the last seven days, however there is always a chance that someone who was in Abington around the time of the incident and who saw something hasn’t yet spoken to us.

“Often, people don’t realise they have seen something which is of significance to the investigation, which is why we are out and about tonight.

“I want anyone who may have seen people acting suspiciously in the Lindsay Avenue area to call us, no matter how insignificant they think it may be.

“I would particularly like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed people acting suspiciously between midnight and 2.30am.”

Anyone with information about the murder of David Brickwood, or who believes they may have seen something of significance in the area of Lindsay Avenue last week, is urged to call police on 101.
