DETECTIVES in East London are offering a �40,000 reward this week in the hunt for Matalan store manager Jamie Simpson's killers almost a year on.
Jamie was stabbed getting ready to close the store in Dalston's Kingsland shopping centre on March 22 last year.
Scotland Yard today have released more CCTV footage of three suspects filmed entering the store in Dalston Lane at 8pm that day, loitering at an escalator in the shopping centre moments before Jamie was attacked.
Jamie was stabbed in the throat and died half-a-hour later.
