UK JOHN GREENWOOD & GARY MILLER: 11-year-olds beaten and buried alive in Whiston, Merseyside - 1980

    The murder case of two schoolboys has been re-opened more than 36 years after they were found beaten and dying on a rubbish dump.

    John Greenwood and Gary Miller were school friends when they were killed in Whiston, Merseyside, in August 1980.

    They were found on the evening of Saturday, 16 August, hidden under a mattress on the site of an abandoned colliery.

    The colliery had become a local rubbish tip, an area now known as Stadt Moers Park.

    Despite being taken to hospital, John died in the early hours of the next day and Gary died the following Wednesday.

    Post mortems revealed that both boys had died as a result of head injuries.

    They are asking to hear from anyone who saw the two boys on Saturday, 16 August, 1980, as they may have vital information.

    They also want to hear from anyone who was at or near the rubbish tip.

    Speaking on behalf of the boys' families, John's sister Deborah Greenwood said that their deaths had been "devastating".

    She added: "The fact that no-one has been convicted for their murders has made it so much harder.
