CCTV images have been released showing a man who was stabbed near a running track, 20 minutes before he was found.

Peter Maine, 56, of Wynyard, Stockton-on-Tees, was discovered near the track at Maiden Castle's sports centre in Durham at about 08:00 BST on Sunday.

The images, which show Mr Maine jogging through the city centre, are the last confirmed sightings of the solicitor.

At the time of his death, Mr Maine was being investigated by police over fraud allegations.

'Open mind'

Mr Maine, who was married and had two daughters, was also being investigated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

The solicitor, whose black Land Rover Discovery had been parked in the city centre's Old Elvet just before 07:30, was wearing blue tracksuit bottoms, trainers and a short-sleeved black running top.

Det Ch Insp Steve Chapman said: "The images show Peter just 20 minutes before he was found on the footpath... I am hoping they may prompt anyone who might have been in Durham city on Sunday morning and seen Peter to come forward.

"Although this death is classed as suspicious I must stress we are keeping an open mind as to how Peter came by his wounds.

"I hope the CCTV images may give us further clues and help provide answers to the many questions we have."
