Hello, and welcome back. We've had lots of very good calls which we'll

:00:32.:00:35.

update you on in just a moment, but first lets remind ourselves of that

:00:35.:00:38.

terrifying armed raid at the home of 52-year-old Noel Martin in

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:57.

Tie her up. Where's the money? They knews I was paralysed because

:00:58.:01:01.

they didn't take any care at all to think, well, I could have just

:01:01.:01:06.

jumped out of the bed. At the end of the day, it makes me

:01:06.:01:12.

angry because I can't get up to do something about it.

:01:12.:01:17.

Well, DC Ian Tomlinson from West Midlands Police joins us. How have

:01:17.:01:22.

the calls been? Some really interesting calls been put forward,

:01:22.:01:26.

particularly some names put forward from the CCTV and other names from

:01:26.:01:32.

what people have heard from the fencingings. There were some

:01:32.:01:36.

interesting things taken. Give us brief descriptions. Yes, the

:01:36.:01:41.

Ingersoll men's watch. I need more calls, particularly about Noel's

:01:41.:01:44.

wife's engagement ring. This is the ring he wore around his neck when

:01:44.:01:48.

he was up and about. Tell us about the level of threat here because

:01:48.:01:52.

that's the really shocking thing. Yes, absolutely. We've got three

:01:52.:01:55.

offenders who think it's perfectly acceptable to rob a paralysed man

:01:55.:02:00.

at gunpoint in his own home. I need to find out who these people are.

:02:00.:02:02.

That was a targeted attack. Over to you.

:02:02.:02:05.

Next, the murder of 72-year-old Bertie Acheson in Coleraine in

:02:05.:02:15.
:02:15.:02:16.

Northern Ireland just one month ago. Did you hear that? Stay here.

:02:16.:02:22.

want the money now! Help, please! If you don't give me the money, I

:02:22.:02:28.

am going to kill your husband. I want your purse.

:02:28.:02:34.

I'd like to tell them what a wonderful man my father was and how

:02:34.:02:40.

he so cruelly ended his life. Ian Harrison is in charge of this

:02:40.:02:45.

one. What's come in? I have received some information, but I am

:02:45.:02:52.

still waitinging for the key call - Glengorm Avenue and the lane at the

:02:52.:02:57.

side of his house. Where is the purse also? Someone out there knows

:02:57.:03:01.

who did this. They do. I believe that's the case. I have seen the

:03:01.:03:05.

devastation in this family. Their whole life has imploded. There is a

:03:05.:03:09.

huge gap now. They deserve answers. They need to know who did this. If

:03:09.:03:12.

you have information, pick up the phone tonight. Don't wait for

:03:12.:03:15.

somebody else to make the call. Good luck with that one. Please, if

:03:15.:03:21.

you know anything, do call in. Martin? Remember that last CCTV we

:03:21.:03:27.

showed you of an assault on a child in a supermarket in Harrow - that's

:03:27.:03:31.

prompted over a dozen calls providing excellent information,

:03:31.:03:34.

including several callers calling in with the same information. That

:03:34.:03:41.

is vital. Remember, that very casual robbery in Withenshaw, the

:03:41.:03:46.

man nursing his cup of coffee. The same name keeps cropping up, as it

:03:46.:03:50.

does for the snap of the necklace in Sidcup. We have a potential name

:03:50.:03:57.

for one suspect. We'd like to know the other. Keep the calls coming in.

:03:57.:04:05.

Kirsty. Another reminder now - of our re-appeal to catch the killers

:04:06.:04:08.

of 31-year-old Tracy Mertens. She was the victim of a particularly

:04:08.:04:18.
:04:18.:04:19.

horrific murder in Cheshire in 1994. Please! Aah!

:04:19.:04:26.

Just unbelievable. I can still feel that pain now from that day.

:04:26.:04:30.

She deserves to be at rest because I don't think she ever will be

:04:30.:04:40.
:04:40.:04:42.

until these people are caught. Well, DS Steve Currie from Cheshire

:04:42.:04:47.

Police is with me. You had an initial appeal in 2009. How have

:04:47.:04:51.

the calls come this time? We have had some good responses, but sadly,

:04:51.:04:54.

our vital witness hasn't come forward yet. Again, a lot of our

:04:54.:04:58.

callers are giving us named suspects with anonymous information.

:04:58.:05:01.

I can't use anonymous information. I need at least a phone number.

:05:01.:05:05.

can guarantee if people call in tonight, then they can talk to you

:05:05.:05:09.

or one of your team, and you can guarantee that'll be a one-to-one

:05:09.:05:12.

response, and you can talk them through the process. I want to ask

:05:12.:05:17.

you particularly about a witness you want to trace. Briefly, who was

:05:17.:05:23.

this? The chap in the Grove in 1994. He saw Tracy Mertens, saw her being

:05:23.:05:28.

bundled into the car he's described other witnesses being a guy in his

:05:28.:05:36.

35 to 45 age bracket, 5'7", stocky, grey, thinning hair, blue trousers.

:05:36.:05:40.

Thank you very much. The calls coming in thick and fast

:05:40.:05:44.

on our rogue's gallery starting with Angela Owen. Please bear in

:05:44.:05:47.

mind she does operate under various alias, but good information coming

:05:47.:05:51.

in on this woman who is wanted in connection for fraud and with the

:05:51.:05:56.

death of a child, giving us potential locations. Moving on to

:05:56.:06:00.

face number six, Martin John Bond. Sightings of him in the West

:06:00.:06:03.

Midlands area. He's wanted for serious assaults. Our last man

:06:03.:06:07.

Wayne Tidy - we have calls on him, bringing him down to a particular

:06:07.:06:11.

area we know he frequents. OK. That's it.

:06:11.:06:14.

That's all we've got time for, but remember, details of all of

:06:14.:06:20.
