During previous appeals for information, Detective Inspector Domenica Catino, who is leading the investigation, said: “We need to hear from anyone that may have been in the area on Sunday morning who may have information on the circumstances of this tragic turn of events. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could really help our investigation.

“We are aware of speculation around the motive for this attack and can now confirm that the suspect approached Mr Anderson in an off-licence shop before an altercation broke out and the suspect delivered a fatal attack.

“Our top priorities now are to support Mr Anderson’s family and catch the person responsible for this horrible attack. Officers are working around the clock to locate this suspect and bring him into custody.”
