Peter Cox to appear on BBC Crimewatch Road Show

Ian Miller, acting editor of the Glenside News,  has informed us that Peter Cox will be interviewed live on the BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow regarding the arson attack last month on his home in Castle Bytham.  The programme will be broadcast on BBC1 on Monday 13 June between 9.00am and 10.00am.  Hopefully the programme will jog a few memories, help the police in their investigations and allow Peter and his wife Sylvia’s life to return to normal.  Even if you can’t watch the programme at the broadcast time why not record it and watch it later – it might be your memory that is jogged.
