DETECTIVES investigating the murder of a Doncaster grandmother in her own home a decade ago say they have had an “excellent” response to a fresh appeal for information to find her killer.

On the tenth anniversary of her death last week, the family of 69-year-old Nora Tait joined South Yorkshire Police in urging a man who called police in March asking to speak to detectives to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Craig Robinson, the senior investigating officer in the case, said that man has now come forward, along with several others offering information.

Mrs Tait’s body was found in her home in Stone Close Avenue, Hexthorpe, in 2005.

DCI Robinson said: “It is really encouraging that the man who called us in March has made contact.

“The calls are encouraging but I would still urge anyone else with any information to come forward, no matter how trivial it may seem.”

He said the response to the appeal had been “excellent” and all new information was being reviewed.

He added: “My team will be looking to progress any new lines of enquiry.

“As a result of the calls I have spoken to some members of the public who called in and further appointments will be made this week to visit everyone who has phoned in.”

Anyone with information should phone 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
