The driver of a white van is being sought by detectives investigating the suspected murder of a pub landlord.

Joe Daniels, 58, was found with a gunshot wound inside the Red Cow pub in Foord Road, Folkestone, shortly before 11:30 GMT on 22 November.

A firearm was also found at the scene, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said a white transit-style van was parked on the pavement outside the pub between 09:30 and 10:30 and its driver may have witnessed something.

"There is no suggestion the driver of the van has done anything wrong," said Det Ch Insp Richard Vickery.

He is described as white, heavily built, between 30 and 50 years old, 5ft 10in (1.77m) tall and having short dark brown hair.
