New pictures have been released of a man who was kidnapped from outside his Hertfordshire home and whose thumb was later found in Ilford.

Mahmood Ahmad, 41, from Watford, was last seen leaving work at a kebab house in Aldgate, London, on 7 March.

Three months on, police have released new images in a bid to get new information about what happened to Mr Ahmad.

Five men have been charged with his murder and other related offences.

Two women have also been charged with related offences and another man is on police bail as part of the inquiry.

Family plea

The new pictures released by police were taken at a wedding at Pendley Manor in Tring last October.

Det Ch Insp Melanie Burn said: "We are hoping that releasing these images of Mahmood at a happy family occasion and with his wife will help people to see him as a much-loved family man who was central to his family unit and very much missed.

"We are hoping that it will prompt anyone who has information they have not come forward with yet to do so and help us end his family's agony. That is our and the family's plea today."

A blue Honda Civic believed to have been used in the kidnap has also not been traced.

The car had the registration V369 GUP and a creamy-brown interior.
