A £10,000 reward is being offered for information after the brutal murder of a man in East Renfrewshire.

Tony Ferns, 33, was savagely attacked in Thornliebank on April 18 last year.

He was sitting in his Audi A3 in Crebar Street when a man approached and attacked him.

Despite his stab wounds, Mr Ferns made it home to Roukenburn Street where paramedics fought to save his life.

But he succumbed to his injuries, dying with mother Phyliss watching on.

Crimestoppers is now offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for his death.

Angela Parker, Scotland national manager at the charity, said: “Tony died in front of his mother after an attack that has shocked the community.

“No-one should ever have to go through that. He was a much-loved son and partner.

“We know that for some people it can be incredibly difficult to speak up about crime, even if you, like us, believe we should all be able to live a safe life.

“It may be that you’ve been unable or unwilling until now to speak to the police directly, in which case, our charity can help.

“Information we receive anonymously – which we then pass on to investigators – helps solve murders and rapes, protects children and vulnerable adults, and supports families who are seeking justice.”

Anyone with information can contact the charity anonymously 24/7 on freephone 0800 555 111, or use the secure anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
