A man who was arrested yesterday in connection with the murder of a Kingsbury man in Eastcote has been bailed.

The 24-year-old was held at Gatwick Airport on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and assisting an offender in relation to the murder of Josh Hanson.

My Hanson, a roads planner, was stabbed in the neck in an unprovoked and motiveless attack inside the RE Bar on October 11.

The man was arriving back in the UK when he was arrested.

He has been bailed to return to a police station in mid-November.

Officers investigating the murder are looking for 27-year-old Shane O’Brien from Ladbroke Grove.

A £10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to O’Brien’s arrest and prosecution.

Officers say although he has links to the Ruislip area, he could be anywhere in the country.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “We are very keen to speak to Shane O’Brien as part of our ongoing enquiries and we believe he could be anywhere in the UK.

“I would appeal directly to O’Brien to contact us, or ask that anyone who has seen him or who knows where he is to contact us as well. I do believe someone out there will know where he is.

“A substantial reward is now on offer to anyone with information that leads to O’Brien’s arrest and prosecution and we hope this will encourage someone to come forward.”

Anyone with information about his whereabouts can call the incident room on 020 8785 8099 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
