The fantastic program that is Crimewatch has been axed by the BBC.
Over 4,000 cases have featured on the programme, including hundreds of high profile murders. Many of the viewers have been able to provide information, supporting the police in making arrests and solving cases.
Crimewatch have been running for 33 years and has assisted in the arrest of high profile criminals such as;
In 1993 viewers helped identify Jon Venables and Robert Thompson, who murdered James Bulger, after the programme showed CCTV footage of them with him.
In 1997, an appeal on the killing of Lin and Megan Russell helped to catch murderer Michael Stone.
In 2014 the show celebrated 30 years of helping the police solve crimes, and producers revealed that one in three cases ended in arrest and one in five in convictions.
Crimewatch is a huge support to the police and should continue for that reason.
