The 65-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, after being found just before 6.30pm on July 6 in St Thomas Close, Coalpool.

Police were alerted by concerned neighbours who had not seen him for several days.

A murder investigation was launched after a post mortem examination determined he had been killed as result of blunt force trauma to his head.

Detective Chief Inspector Ed Foster is continuing to appeal for information: "We suspect that Mr Bradley may have been dead for several days before being discovered. We have spoken to several neighbours and we continue to build up a picture of his final movements.

“We’d like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in St Thomas Close in recent days or any unfamiliar faces coming and going."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting log number 2337 from 6 July.
