Detectives investigating the murder of a West Yorkshire man last week have released CCTV images of the victim.

The body of 68-year-old Clement Desmier, known as Butch, was found at his house in Rowlestone Rise, Ravenscliffe, Bradford, on Thursday.

A post mortem examination revealed that Mr Desmier died from multiple injuries.

A 30-year-old man who was arrested at the weekend in connection with the incident was released without charge on Wednesday night.

A £5,000 Crimestoppers reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Mr Desmier's murder.

'Jog memories'

Mr Desmier was believed to have left his home at about 11:00 BST on Wednesday 22 August to visit a farm shop with a friend, West Yorkshire Police believe.

He then made his way into Shipley town centre at about noon where he visited a bank and shops, during which CCTV images of Mr Desmier were captured.

Mr Desmier then took a bus towards Greengates and returned home, said police.

Det Supt Mark Ridley, senior investigating officer, said the CCTV images had been released in the hope they would "jog people's memories".

"Our focus is upon anybody who may have seen him during this period, either shopping or on his way home," he said.

"Likewise, it is important that we quickly hear from anyone who visited Mr Desmier that afternoon, that evening or the following day."

Two men reported to have been acting suspiciously outside Mr Desmier's home during the early hours of 23 August were still being sought, Det Supt Ridley added.
