A man from Letchworth who was arrested yesterday in connection with the murder of a man who was killed more than 25 years ago has been released on police bail.

The 45-year-old – who will return to Thorpe Wood Police Station on April 4 – was arrested on suspicion of perverting the court of justice yesterday in relation to the 1990 murder of Andrew Bedford.

Andrew was last seen in Ramsey on September 28, 1990, and detectives believe he was killed later that evening with a shotgun at a garage which no longer exists in the town called Mongrel Cars.

A further seven people were arrested in connection with the murder yesterday, six have been released on conditional bail and a man remains in police custody.

Operation Ongar was relaunched on April 10 last year by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit.
