A reconstruction of a suspected arson attack on a flat in Worcester that led to the death of a man is to appear on Crimewatch.

West Mercia Police are using the BBC One programme on Thursday 26 January to appeal for more information.

Andrew Heath, aged 52, was found dead at the property in Chedworth Close, Warndon, in the early hours of 14 December.

A £10,000 reward has been offered by police after the death of Mr Heath.

Last month, police arrested and released two other men, one in his 20s and the other in his 30s, pending further investigations.

Speaking at a police news conference, his sister Leia Charleson said: "He was a much loved family member and wonderful son to my parents, who are devastated by his untimely death.

"He was a kind and caring man who would help anyone especially those in need.

"The fire destroyed all of his most precious possessions, it feels as if he's been eradicated but whoever killed him will never take away our memories."
