Farrah has been described as ‘key’ to police enquiries and the Crimestoppers reward is for information leading to his arrest.

Four arrests have been made so far over Kavan’s death but nobody has yet been charged.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and three boys - two aged 17 and one aged 16 - were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rob.

They have all been bailed.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
