what's come in soon. First a reminder of the shocking murder of

:01:01.:01:04.

79-year-old widow Nellie Geraghty. She died after being mugged in

stolen in the attack and is still missing.

:01:19.:01:29.
:01:29.:01:31.

No, no. Please leave me alone. She wouldn't even forget him going

:01:31.:01:37.

from one room to another, let alone let go of her bag for anybody to

:01:37.:01:41.

take it. He was her life. That's why she fought for him and that's

:01:41.:01:46.

why she's not with us. DCI Joanne Rawlinson from Greater Manchester

:01:46.:01:50.

Police is here. We should remind people that when Nellie was found

:01:50.:01:54.

she was clutching the handle of the bag that was stolen. Can her family

relation to the bike. If you have any information we still need you

:02:00.:02:04.

to pick up the phone and give us a call. I believe that the person

:02:04.:02:07.

responsible for this may well have confided in someone. If that is you,

:02:07.:02:12.

I would urge you to pick the phone up and give me the call. Dot right

year-old Andrew Heath. It happened There's a fire outside my front

door. Help! I just can't imagine what it

:02:59.:03:04.

would have felt like for him struggling probably to get out of

:03:05.:03:14.
:03:15.:03:15.

the flat and knowing he couldn't. It must have been terrible.

:03:15.:03:19.

Paul Williamson is here. We've had an interesting name put forward

:03:19.:03:23.

which we will be looking into. I would like to reiterate our appeal

:03:24.:03:28.

for witnesses who may have been at the scene that night, particularly

:03:28.:03:33.

somebody walking what is described as a small black dog around 3.30am

:03:33.:03:37.

and a cyclist in the area just before the fire was reported. Those

:03:37.:03:41.

could be crucial witnesses. should remind people who might have

:03:41.:03:44.

information that this was an horrific death for Andrew. We heard

:03:44.:03:47.

his call to the emergency services. He was trapped. He knew there was

:03:47.:03:52.

no get out. It was an horrific incidentment for the sake of

:03:52.:03:56.

Andrew's family in particular, his parents, who we've heard from, I'd

:03:56.:03:59.

like to again appeal to the members of the public to make that call.

:03:59.:04:03.

Let's go over to Matthew. Great response on the CCTV. Let's

:04:03.:04:07.

start with the brick attack in Leamington Spa outside the

:04:07.:04:12.

nightclub. The man smashing a brick in a victim's frais fracturing an

:04:12.:04:15.

eye socket. An important call on that one. A name has been given.

:04:15.:04:19.

Police are following that up. Next the robbery on a London bus.

:04:19.:04:24.

Remember those smirking robbers, they went for a bag first, then the

:04:24.:04:28.

wallet. There was a fight. We've had promising calls again. Some

:04:28.:04:34.

names put forward. Earlier, we asked for your help to

:04:34.:04:37.

track the armed robbers who raided a village Post Office in

:04:38.:04:40.

Nottinghamshire. They brutally attacked the post mistress and her

:04:40.:04:50.
:04:50.:05:00.

frail husband. Get down.

:05:00.:05:03.

You can get through a day without thinking about it, then something

:05:03.:05:10.

will trigger it off. It's just unspeakably scary.

:05:10.:05:13.

DI Ash Wilson from Nottinghamshire Police is here. Really brutal

:05:13.:05:18.

attack, a loft violence used. How have the calls been? We've had an

:05:18.:05:21.

excellent response. Two people naming the same person, different

:05:21.:05:25.

callers, which is really good news. My officers are working on that

:05:25.:05:28.

right now. So I'm really pleased about that. Particularly you were

:05:28.:05:32.

interested in people who might have seen them changing get away cars.

:05:32.:05:36.
