CCTV footage may help solve journalist death riddle

Closed-circuit TV pictures of a cyclist being sought in connection with the murder of a former local newspaper journalist have been released by detectives.

Ted Rhodes, (69), who used to work for the Wandsworth Borough News, was found dead at home two days after he was punched by a cyclist whom he had shouted at for cycling the wrong way down a one way street in London.

The newly-released images show a cyclist riding along Fulham Broadway later the same night.

Officers are hoping they may jog the memories of people who were there that night.

A private family service for Mr Rhodes is being planned, followed by a memorial service and wake in Wandsworth.
