Murder squad in hunt for gunman

Murder squad detectives are hunting a 31-year-old man who fled after allegedly threatening them with a shotgun. South Wales police said David Alfred Willoway may be armed.

They were investigating the murder of Helen Martin, 18, whose battered body was found at the Symond's Yat beauty spot in Herefordshire on Wednesday, four days after she was last seen at a Maesteg pub.

Detectives who watched a security video showing Helen leave the pub disco with Willoway said yesterday he was not a suspect but may have been the last person to see her alive after dropping her off in his car near her home.
