The grandmother was brutally killed with a hammer in a property in Smugglers Lane which she was house sitting on December 29, 2013.

Almost exactly 12 months on, Valerie’s two children Tim Wood and Jemima Harrison have urged anyone with any information to come forward to help police finally put their mother’s killer behind bars.
