Police renew murder appeal

Police have renewed their appeal into the murder of a man in Co Down last month.

Andrew Cully, a father of two teenage boys from Greyabbey, was shot up to 10 times as he sat in his parked car in the loyalist West Winds estate in Newtownards on 24 March.

Detectives want to speak to anyone who saw Mr Cully sitting in his car prior to the shooting.

While police have still to come up with a motive for the attack, they did revisit the scene of the crime earlier in this month as part of their investigations.

Police had initially arrested one man but he was later released without charge following questioning "about serious crime in the area".
