Three years after a grandfather was beaten to death in his home detectives have vowed they will "not give up" on the investigation.

Barry Rubery, 68, was found bound and beaten in Iron Acton, South Gloucestershire, on 28 April, 2010.

He had been tied up with electrical flex and cable ties, and a number of his belongings had been stolen.

The pensioner had been out with friends and returned to his home at Crossing Cottage at about 22:45 BST.

He was found with significant head injuries the following morning.

Supt Mike Carter, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: "While a number of years have passed since Barry's death, we have not given up on this investigation.

"We are constantly reviewing information and making further inquiries in a bid to bring the person or people responsible for Barry's death to justice.

"We want to provide some closure to Barry's family who still cannot understand why their father and grandfather was taken from them in such a brutal manner."
