Dead man found at Chittering was retired farmer from Wales

A 76-year-old man found dead at a house in Cambridgeshire has been named by police.

Llywelyn Thomas, a retired farmer from south Wales, died from head and facial injuries, post-mortem tests showed.

Police were called to a house in Ely Road, Chittering, on Sunday afternoon where they found the body of Mr Thomas.

The victim's car, a Rover estate registration BJ51 CJV, is thought to have been stolen on Saturday, and was found on Monday in Milton.

Police have appealed for anyone who has any information about the man.

Police were called after neighbours reported the lights on all night and the front door open.

Det Ch Insp Ian Tandy said: "We are very keen to hear from anyone who saw the victim's car between his home in Chittering, by the Travellers Rest public house, and Milton on Saturday evening.

"The car had mechanical issues and would have made a lot of noise when it was being driven. It is also likely to have been travelling slowly."

Mr Thomas was born in St Fagans, on the outskirts of Cardiff, and had been living in Cambridgeshire for about 10 years.

He had farmed in the Cefn Cribwr and Margam areas of south Wales.
