Hello, and welcome back. I must say there have been some remarkable
calls tonight - more of what's come in very soon. First, let's remind
ourselves of the appalling case of 15-year-old Mo Bourner who has been
left severely brain damaged after an unprovoked attack in Bexhill in
East Sussex. Mo is a very well- known, popular lad, peace loving,
likes to go out, enjoy himself. He was really looking forward to going
to the beach party with his friends. The party was fun, man. I had a
good time. Oi, boy. Come over here. Mo! To then see him lying there
being kept alive, and knowing how lively he was, it seems desperately
sad. Desperately sad -, well, DCI Nick
Stone from the crime team is here. I have had a fantastic night. The
combined pieces of information we have had in have been great. We
have now over 50 pieces of information. The first one is the
same person is being consistently named as the offender. The second
thing is potentially new witnesses have come forward to both the
assault and some acts of aggression at the beach party earlier in the
evening, which is great. The final thing that's coming through is the
courage of the people coming forward. They're starting to
reflect, I think, on mum and dad and the courage and the dignity
they displayed and are going to do the right thing and tell the truth.
As you said, you'll treat any witnesses with the utmost security
and anonymity. They can be assured of that. We should also remind
people this was just a straight forward, fine, upstanding boy about
to sit his GCSEs who now has 90% brain damage because of the punch.
I can offer people that reashun, and Mo has had his future taken
away. Next, the appeal for new information to track down the
murderer of Detective Constable Jim Morrison. He was fatally stabbed
two decades ago as he tackled a bag thief in London's West End.
Put the knife down. Put the knife Whenever somebody dies or is killed
tragically like that any time of year is going to be horrendous, but
at Christmas, it just felt for me very hard because it was Christmas,
and life goes on for everybody else, but you don't really want it to.
Here, again, is Detective Chief Inspector Amanda Hargreaves. What's
come in? We have had a large amount of calls this evening despite this
being 20 years ago. Some of these calls have been very interesting
and will no doubt help the inquiry enormously. One in particular is
from a potential witness that has given us information we're
currently working on. Sounds like a really good lead. I know in recent
weeks you have had calls from the Algerian community. You're
desperate for those people to call back. Yes that community have
helped us a lot. There have been a couple of callers who left numbers.
We tried to contact them, and there has been no answer. We'd
particularly like them to call back. After all of this time, Jim and his
friends and his family desperate to actually catch the person
responsible. Please, if you do have information, call in.
We have good stuff coming in on CCTV. Let's start with the
Nottingham double bank robbery. We have had a couple of names already
suggested by viewers at home who could be, then a biker, seemingly,
unprovoked, attacked train passengers, then we showed you a
guy indecently exposing himself in Hertfordshire. We have had
promising information, I'm told by the officers. We have had a name
and location for them. We're joined by Detective Sergeant Duncan
Cameron who is investigating the unbelievable sexual assault by two
men on the same night. We have had a number of positive responses from
callers tonight. However, there have been a couple who phoned in,
haven't left details. We want them to phone back. We can guarantee
anonymity if they call us back tonight. Let's remind people of the
horror of the attack. There was plenty of CCTV. Briefly, what are
we seeing? That's correct. It's two different males that come into the
shop separately and attack her and carry out serious sexual assaults
on her. There is also importantly a person who could be a witness. This
was a woman who was in the lane that evening. Briefly? During the
first attack, this female comes into the lane, walks about halfway
down, then turns on her heels and goes back out again. We'd encourage
her to contact us. She's wearing a sort of hooded top. People might
want to take a closer look at that - with fur on it. Matthew?
Let's look at the case of 37-year- old Errol McKenzie. You'll remember
he was the man murdered in a park in East London. Mark Gower is
looking after this one. You have had really interesting calls.
have had some useful stuff coming through, really impressed by it. We
have information about the car, potential suspects, and more
importantly, a potential motive. The CCTV you've got is important.
What information is on that? It's vital. There is a particular whale
tail on one of the bicycles - someone is going to know, the user
of those. Hopefully, someone will come forward.
A reminder of the terrifying raid on a Leicestershire farmhouse in
which a load of rare, expensive shotguns were taken. I was watching
the one with the machete which was a bit frightening when I was hit in
the face with a crowbar. It horrified me to think that some of
the guns they took cube threatening some poor shopkeeper or something
like that. OK. Detective Constable Tim Smith is with me me now. How
have the calls been? We have had some good calls, especially of the
guns. Let's remind people. How much were they worth? �70,000. And the
whole of the guns in general? �150,000. Quite distinctive, hand
made guns - people would recognise them if they'd been offered them.
Two cars had been stolen too - a range Rover and a Defender. They
had personalised plates. These were taken off shortly after the robbery,
but hopefully someone has seen them. Rav, over to you. Good stuff coming
in on the faces. Let's look at number one, Mohammed moment - Tariq.
There are leads coming in from the Midlands, where we thought he might
be, the next, Nissan Note, several calls connecting him to a specific
area police are following up, anded soed so wanted for that -- Sodor
Olom wanted for that rape. There are three separate calls on him.
Thanks to everyone who got in touch. Details of all of tonight's cases
