Police sorry for Worcester paedophile [sic] photo mix-up

"AH, who died in a flat fire in Worcester. Mr H died from smoke inhalation

Police have apologised to a man after using a CCTV image of him in the mistaken belief he was a convicted paedophile [sic] killed in an arson attack.

AH, 52, was found dead at his flat in Warndon in Worcester on 14 December.

Earlier this month, police released a new CCTV image of a man in a shop they believed was Mr H.

But a woman "expressed concerns" to police over the man's identity and the force has since withdrawn the image.

Det Ch Insp Paul Williamson, from West Mercia Police, said: "We have looked into the concerns expressed by the lady that called us and I can confirm the man captured on the CCTV is not AH, and that he has no connection to Mr H's death.""
