The sister of a man shot dead in his home in Greater Manchester has appealed for information on the ten-year anniversary of his death.

Andrew Boland, 35, was shot in the chest after being threatened by two masked men at his home in Brigade Drive, Stretford, on 24 March 2004.

No-one has been charged over the killing which was carried out in front of his partner.

His sister, Debbie Boland, said: "For ten years we have suffered."

She added: "We have had to endure the frustration of knowing that those responsible have never been brought to justice."

Bob Ashton, from the Cold Case Review Unit, said: "Andrew was a well-known figure in the Stretford and Sale areas and for years, rumours have circulated of who the offenders are.

"We believe there are people who know who is responsible and I would appeal to them to come forward and break this wall of silence."
