To catch a killer

The Whitley Bay News Guardian is offering a £3,000 reward in a bid to find the killer of Sara Cameron.

The Finnish-born student was murdered as she walked home from a night out on April 20, 2000.

To coincide with the second anniversary of her death, the newspaper has offered the cash reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her killer.

A poster campaign and public appeal for information has also been launched throughout North Tyneside and the Tyne and Wear Metro system.

The News Guardian has been covering the nationwide hunt for Sara’s killer since she was murdered.

It is hoped the reward will prompt someone to finally come forward with the vital information that could break open the case.

Editor Ross Weeks said: “The News Guardian has covered the murder inquiry from the very start.

“Because of this, we felt that we should contribute something positive towards the inquiry, hence the offer of the reward.

“We hope that this offer will help the police and encourage someone to come forward who can help bring an end to this sad case.

“We would urge anyone who can help to get in touch with the Sara Cameron incident room as soon as possible.”

  • News Guardian reporter Nick Martin has won three awards for his coverage of the murder of Sara Cameron, including BT/Society of Editor Newcomer of the Year and North East Weekly Newspaper Journalist of the Year.
