Police search for gun in Hastings fishing ponds
Today (September 10) specialist search teams started searching for a gun believed to have been used in the murder of Jimmy Millen in Hastings in 2001.
Sussex Police search units are diving into fishing lates at the Clive Vale Angling Club off Harold Road in Hastings, in a bid to find the weapon.
Mr Millan 27, was shot as he worked on his car in Carpenter Drive, Hastings, on October 24, 2001, by the passenger riding on a black motorbike.
No one has ever been arrested in connection with the crime.
Detective Chief Inspector Nick May said: "Information has come to the police that a firearm used in the shooting of Jimmy Millen is in one of these two fishing lakes.
"I have assessed the information as credible."
Officers expect to spend the next week on their search.
A £10,000 reward for information offered in 2001 is still valid.
Anyone with information should call SP on 101 quoting operation fare.
