A man arrested on suspicion of murdering Huntingdon’s Andrew Bedford has been re-bailed by police.

Officers arrested and questioned the 56-year-old man, from Southampton, in January, in connection with Mr Bedford's killing.

Seven other people were also arrested in connection with the cold case, codenamed Operation Ongar, which was re-launched on April 10 last year by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit.

The man has now been bailed to return to a Southampton police station on May 10.

The seven others, six men and a woman, were also re-bailed to the same date.

Mr Bedford was last seen on September 28, 1990, in Factory Bank, off Great Whyte, Ramsey, in a light blue Ford Cortina estate car eating some takeaway food, possibly fish and chips.

Detectives believe he was killed later that evening with a shotgun at a garage which no longer exists in Ramsey, called Mongrel Cars.

In September last year, officers re-appealed for information on the 25th anniversary of Mr Bedford's murder. The officers spoke to residents, handed out leaflets and put up posters across Ramsey in a fresh appeal for information.

In June last year, police announced they had discovered pieces of bone during a painstaking 13-day search on land off Stocking Fen Road, Ramsey.

Anyone with information should contact the major crime unit on 01480 422791, e-mail operation.ongar@cambs.pnn.police.uk, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
