A FRESH appeal for witnesses has been launched by investigators working on behalf of a Bradford man serving life for murder.

Lee Calvert was jailed in 2014, aged 23, for his part in the murder of Barry Selby, 50, of East Bowling, who was shot in the leg and had acid thrown on him in October 2013. He died three days later in hospital.

Calvert, of Sirling Crescent, Holme Wood, was found guilty alongside Joseph Lowther, of Copgrove Road, Holme Wood; Robert Woodhead, of Fred's Place, Tyersal and Andrew Feather, of Heysham Drive, Holme Wood.

At the sentencing hearing in June 2014, Calvert was given life with a minimum term of 36 years, after Mr Justice Globe accepted he had fired the gun and poured acid over Mr Selby at his home in Raleigh Street, East Bowling. The attack happened at about 2.10am on October 14, 2013.

Calvert asked 'Where's the justice?' as he was led away to start his prison sentence.

In July 2016, Calvert, Lowther, Woodhead and Feather had a bid to appeal against their convictions rejected at the Court of Appeal by three senior judges.

A spokesman for A1 Investigation Bureau, which is looking at Calvert's case, said they are appealing to anyone who has information, or who was on the street at the time, Rayleigh Street, to call the Freephone number 0800 358 0909.

The investigator claims: "There are some glaring holes in the trial which have not been answered and errors made."

The Telegraph & Argus put the claims to West Yorkshire Police and a force spokesman said: "Mr Selby’s murder was the subject of an extensive police investigation, as a result of which four men were put before the courts and after a lengthy trial, they were found guilty and sentenced.

"If it is to be subject to a review, for that reason it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this time."

Calvert's family have also continued to fight on his behalf since he was jailed in 2014.

His mother, Karen Calvert, and sister Kelly continue to protest his innocence despite previously losing an appeal against his conviction.

Kelly told the Telegraph and Argus in 2016: "He was convicted from an identity parade months after the murder. He had to wear a balaclava and he was convicted because someone said they recognised his eyes.

“We also have fresh evidence which was not used at the original trial and could not use at appeal. We are going to keep on fighting and will take it further to the European Courts."
