The brother of a Great Yarmouth man murdered in his home 25 years ago is stepping up his campaign to have the case re-opened. Plumber Tony Miller, 48, has written to the police imploring officers to review evidence in the unsolved knife killing of his brother Peter, 24, who was found dead on December 9, 1984.

Mr Miller, of Suffolk Road, Gorleston, is keen for officers to consider possible links with garage owners Jim Hall and Andrew Ventham, found dead in their Camden Place workshop in November. In his letter to the police, Mr Miller says: “Most victims get annual case reviews. We can't remember the last time this has happened. We feel for 25 years you have failed Peter and us.”

Police spokesman Nicola Atter said officers would consider the letter and respond to it in due course. She added there was currently no evidence to link the garage inquiry with Mr Miller's murder.
