  15. Renewed appeal on anniversary of taxi driver's murder

    The family of a man who was murdered in Folkestone 29 years ago have launched a renewed appeal for information.

    Derek Brann's blood-soaked taxi was found abandoned in the layby of a residential area in Sandgate, Folkestone, on the morning of Sunday 6 November 1988.

    His body was found a fortnight later, dumped and hidden behind a crash barrier on the M20 motorway. He had been stabbed multiple times.

    Twenty-nine years on and cold case detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are renewing their appeal for information about Mr Brann’s murder in the hope that advancements in DNA technology may finally result in his killer being brought to justice.

    Mr Brann's son Aaron said: "Dad was a very firm man, ex-military, but he was a very loving father as well.

    "Still to this day I cannot understand why anybody would have done what they did to Dad. It’s incomprehensible.

    "It’s difficult to live with but you just get on with your life. Since our mum died last January it has brought up all sorts of memories again, and reminded me of the desire we all have to get a positive conclusion to it all."

    Mr Brann’s family are now appealing for anyone with information about his murder to come forward.

    Anyone with information about Mr Brann’s death is urged to call 01634 884010 and leave a message for the cold case investigation team. Alternatively call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
