Detective Superintendent Stuart Wratten, said: "We are continuing to appeal for anyone with information regarding Mr Roper's death to come forward and speak with officers.

"This attack happened on a Saturday afternoon and I am certain that it would have been witnessed by a number of people.

"It is possible that someone who was travelling on the tube saw the beginning or aftermath of Mr Roper's murder but have not realised how serious the incident was. I would urge them to call the incident room."
