David Brickwood: Police divers search lake in murder probe

Police investigating the murder of a man from Northampton in 2015 have started to search a lake in the hope of finding a weapon.

David Brickwood, 74, was stabbed five times in a "violent and dreadful" attack at his home on Lindsay Avenue, Abington, on 26 September 2015.

The lake at Eastfield Park is a mile away from the murder scene.

Det Insp Phil Mills said: "We still haven't found a murder weapon and it isn't clear what was taken [from the house]. That is what our focus is on."

No-one has been charged over the death.
