‘I’d like anyone who was in the pub to get in touch as they may unwittingly have important information.

‘We’ve now released an image of Mr Roe; I really need anyone who believes they may have seen him in the pub that night or making his way towards Springfield Drive to contact us as soon as possible.

‘There is also the possibility that anyone driving near the scene or who lives nearby may have recorded vital evidence on dash-cams or CCTV.

‘So again I’d ask them to check the video and get in touch if they believe they have footage of interest.’
