The family of a murdered Cornish farmer insists somebody, somewhere knows who did it.

An inquest has ruled Les Bate from St Kew Highway was unlawfully killed ten years ago.

But nobody has ever been caught.

The seventy-one year old's battered body was found at his home near Wadebridge.

The inquest was told that he had been seen carrying a large amount of cash the day before he died. But his family insists that he was not someone who was "flashy."

Police insist that all cold cases are regularly reviewed and that they will investigate new leads in the hunt for Mr Bate's killer.
