Police investigating the death of Corby businessman David Ross say they have been pleased with the response to an appeal on BBC's Crimewatch.

Mr Ross, 39, known as Les, was found dead with head injuries at the Village Express hotel in Corby on 17 December.

He was staying there because his home had been burgled and flooded.

Det Ch Insp Martin Kinchin said: "Some useful information was received as a result of last night's show, which we will now be working through."

He added: "We are sure there are still people in Corby, or further afield, who may have vital information in helping us to establish who was responsible for the death of Mr Ross.

"We are grateful to everyone who has come forward so far. But if you haven't and saw Mr Ross at any time on the day of his death, Monday 17 December, or the weekend before, then please come forward now.

"We are also keen for any information about the property that was stolen from Mr Ross's home on Friday 14 December, namely an iPhone, a BlackBerry PlayBook and a laptop computer."

He said close friends of Mr Ross who had not spoken to police should contact them.

If anyone believes they have information about the incident, they are asked to call Northamptonshire Police.

The Crimewatch appeal went out on Thursday night.
