Detectives investigating the murder of an 86-year-old Cambridgeshire woman have confirmed they are following "fresh lines of inquiry".

Widow Una Crown, was found in her bungalow in Magazine Lane, Wisbech, on 13 January. She had been stabbed and her body burned.

Police revisited the area to mark three months since her death. The response was encouraging, they said.

A 58-year-old man arrested in late January remains on bail until 15 May.

The anniversary appeal for information took place last week, with officers posting letters to every household in Magazine Lane.

A mobile police station was also set up and posters advertising a £10,000 Crimestoppers reward for information were put up.

Det Insp David Grierson, said: "We have been encouraged by the response both from the local community and also further afield.

"We are following up a number of fresh lines of inquiry generated by the appeal. However I would continue to appeal for anyone with information about Mrs Crown's murder to call police."
