“I am keen to speak to anyone who saw a man acting suspiciously outside the pub, particularly two groups of people who passed him as he sat outside at about 3.10am.

“Please contact me if you saw anything you thought was odd, no matter how unimportant you might consider it to be. It could be vital to the inquiry.”
