Fresh appeal over London student murder

Nicholas Clarke was described by his mother as "caring, loving and kind"
Police have made a renewed appeal to find who killed a 19-year-old in London in 2008, stressing a £20,000 reward is available for information.
Nicholas Clarke was shot in the head at Fountain Place on the Myatt's Field Estate in Brixton on 14 March 2008.
Eight youths were seen nearby at the time but nobody has been charged.
Finding the killer "would go some way to helping the family come to terms with their tragic loss", said Det Insp Jim Redmond of the Metropolitan Police.
"Many young people who might have been closely involved at the time will have moved on with their lives now.
"We know there are people who have valuable information that could lead to the prosecution of the person responsible for Nicholas's death," he said.
Nicholas was a student who lived with his mother, Sharon Barnett, in Chryssell Road, near Kennington Park.
She described him as "the most caring, loving and kind individual you could ever meet" and said his death had left "a huge gap in our lives that can never be filled".
The reward was made available a year ago, on the first anniversary of the attack, for information leading to the prosecution of those responsible.
Police said "many people" had been arrested during their investigation but no charges had been brought.
