Detectives have described a shooting as 'brutal and calculating' and renewed appeals after a man was murdered in front of his child in Northolt.
It happened 15 years ago in 1998 but police haven't given up on the case.
A substantial reward of up to £20,000 is on offer for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person responsible for the murder, which occurred on Saturday 2 May 1998.
Robin Charles Wood , 47, lived on the Racecourse Estate, Northolt with his partner and son.
