A 58-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Anthony Littler in East Finchley in 1984. Mr Littler was found with head injuries in an alleyway known as The Causeway, near East Finchley Tube station in north London at 12.15am on 1 May 1984.

Mr Littler, an executive officer at Customs and Excise, was single and lived a short distance from the station. Earlier this week, the Metropolitan Police launched an appeal for information surrounding his death.

On Sunday (10 December) a man was arrested on suspicion of murder. He has been bailed until January pending further enquiries.
