Detectives investigating the 1984 murder of a man in an alleyway have made a second arrest. 

Anthony Littler, 45, was killed after he left East Finchley Tube Station just after midnight on May 1, 1984. 

He was found with significant head injuries in what was then an alleyway close to East End Road, behind the station.

Officers believe Anthony was murdered in a random attack but no one has ever been charged.

Following a recent appeal for information, a 58-year-old man was arrested on Sunday (December 10)  on suspicion of murder.

Now on Wednesday (December 13) a second man, aged 54, was arrested on suspicion of murder. 

Both men have been bailed to a date in January.

Detectives continue to appeal for information. 

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, who is leading the investigation, said: “These arrests come just days after our latest appeal, and I would like to thank everyone who has already come forward with information. 

“However, we still need to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the events leading up to Anthony's murder.”
