The devastated dad of tragic Milton man John Connelly has retraced his son's final steps in a desperate bid to find out what happened to him.

Officers still don't know the circumstances which led to the 28-year-old's death three months on from the tragic recovery from the water at Spiers Wharf on July 22.

John was last seen on the night of July 15 entering the underpass at Garscube Road at around 10.20pm.

His dad, also called John, followed his journey along the path - which he says is "very well lit at night".
