A reward has been offered to find those responsible for the murder of a Lincolnshire businessman.

David Twigg, 46, was found dead on 13 March after being locked inside a cupboard in a building in Station Yard, Burgh le Marsh, which was set on fire.

Crimestoppers has offered a reward of up to £3,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

Mr Twigg and his partner Julie Dixon were attacked at the workshop he owned in the former railway goods depot.

Officers want to speak to people who may have been in the vicinity of the workshop on 12 or 13 March.

A public footpath runs close by the property and walkers have been known to cross land owned by Mr Twigg.

Paul Elliott, chair of Lincolnshire Crimestoppers, said: "Offences of this type are extremely rare in Lincolnshire which makes this incident all the more shocking.

"If there is anyone who was in the area shortly before or after the murder who remembers seeing anything suspicious, please get in contact with Crimestoppers.

"We take information anonymously, so no-one will ever find out who you are."
