Case of boys' 1980 Whiston murder reopened
Police have reopened the case of two 11-year-old friends murdered in Merseyside 36 years ago.
John Greenwood and Gary Miller died after being found beaten and hidden under a mattress on a rubbish tip in Whiston on 16 August 1980.
A man was tried for their murders in 1981, but found not guilty.
Police are making a fresh appeal for anybody who saw the boys on the day of the murders after receiving new information.
A dog walker found the schoolfriends at about 19.20 BST at the site of a disused colliery on Pottery Lane, which is now Stadt Moers Park.
