Tracey Mertens: Appeal over Cheshire petrol murder 20 years on

Police in Cheshire have renewed their appeal for help in finding two men who doused a woman in petrol and set her alight 20 years ago.

Tracey Mertens, 31, from Rochdale, met a "violent and horrific death" at Christ Church in Eaton near Congleton on 23 December 1994, said police.

She sustained 95% burns to her body and died 12 hours later.

A £30,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible still stands, police said.
