Detectives are making a fresh appeal for information about the death of a DJ whose body was found by a railway line in north London five years ago.

Kester David, 53, from Wood Green, was found badly burned under a bridge in Palmers Green on 7 July, 2010.

Up to four men were seen close to the railway line and Morrisons store car park in the early hours that day and police would like to speak to them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police.

Two men were spotted at about 02:30 BST on 7 July in the alleyway near Maple Leaf Court flats.

Police said one of the men, wearing a grey hooded top, appeared to squeeze himself through a fence into the alleyway that runs down the side of Maple Leaf Court. Both men then walked behind a red brick building.

Separately, two men were seen walking across the Morrisons car park at about 03:45 BST later that day. They walked towards the recycling bins. Police described them as white men, about 5ft 8in (1.73m) to 5ft 11ins (1.80m) tall and of average build.

Det Ch Insp Noel McHugh said: "Even with the passage of time, I believe those individuals will recognise themselves from their actions, location and the significant appeals we have made around Kester's death."
