Police hunting the killer of a private detective are appealing for people who contacted them after a BBC Crimewatch programme in 1987 to get back in touch.

Daniel Morgan, 37, who grew up in Monmouthshire, was found with an axe in his head in a pub car park in Sydenham, south London, 19 years ago.

Police appealed for information about his death in a programme made in June 1987, three months after the murder.

A fresh appeal will be broadcast on BBC One's Crimewatch on Monday (2100 GMT).

The programme also featured a reconstruction of Mr Morgan's death in 2002.

But despite several arrests during five investigations, no-one has been convicted.

New witnesses

The son of an army officer, Mr Morgan was originally from the village of Llanfrechfa, Monmouthshire.

His mother Isobel Hulsmann, from Hay-on-Wye, Powys, and his brother Alastair, from London, have campaigned for justice since the murder.

Mr Morgan said: "There's no question the police have made significant progress in this inquiry."

The Metropolitan Police said the programme provided another opportunity for people with information to contact officers.

Last month, police said they had recovered Mr Morgan's 1957 Austin Healey sports car from a lock-up garage in London, and they had traced new witnesses in their hunt for the killer.

Mr Morgan's body was found at the Golden Lion pub in Sydenham on 10 March 1987.

He co-owned a firm called Southern Investigations, which employed off-duty police officers.
