Police investigating the murder of a 50-year-old man in Belfast before Christmas have made a new appeal to the public for help and released CCTV footage of the victim.

Basil McAfee was found dead in a house off the Cavehill Road in North Belfast on 20 December.

Detectives released CCTV images of the last sighting of him alive, at an off-licence on the Cavehill Road on 19 December.

Police believe the victim was with other people in the off-licence, but so far they have not come forward.

PSNI Detective Chief Inspector John McVea said: "Basil suffered a violent death. I believe he was beaten about the head with a sharp implement and then stabbed.

"This was a savage, frenzied attack. A number of items were taken from the house.

"Whoever did this is a danger to others in the community while still at large."
