Detectives from the Police Service’s Major Investigation Team are today, 9th February, making a specific appeal, one week on from the murder of Blake Newland.

The teenager was stabbed multiple times in the Woodland Walk area of Limavady on Friday night, 2 February.  Sadly, he later died from his injuries.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Gibson said: “Blake was just 17 years old when his life was taken.  This was the most tragic loss of a young man’s life.  A loss which has left a community in shock and loved ones bereft.

“It is now one week on.  And I’m keen to, first of all, extend sincere thanks to those who have assisted our investigation to-date.”

Detective Chief Inspector Gibson continued: “I’m also making a specific appeal for footage, whether CCTV, mobile phone, or dash cam.  Were you in the Woodland Walk area of Limavady on Friday 2 February, between 8.30pm and 9.50pm? If you have captured any footage of this fatal attack or an earlier altercation, please share it with police using the Major Incident Public Portal.”

Alternatively, information can be provided to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at   

6. Check the Roasted Vegetables: By this point, the pumpkin and sweet potato should be soft and well-roasted. If not, don’t worry; oven times can vary. If they are soft, proceed to the next step.

7. Blend the Soup: Add the roasted pumpkin and sweet potato to the pot with the sauce. Stir them in and cook until everything is soft and well combined. You can use a hand blender or a food processor to blend the mixture until it’s smooth.

8. Season to Taste: Return the soup to the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

9. Serve and Garnish: Ladle the creamy soup into large bowls. For a burst of flavour and aroma, add the picked rosemary on top. Finish the dish by sprinkling Parmesan cheese on the soup.

10. Optional Croutons: If you prefer, serve the soup with crispy croutons on the side. This is a matter of personal preference, so feel free to skip them if you like.

11. Enjoy: Sit back, savour the delicious flavours, and enjoy this creamy turmeric pumpkin and sweet potato soup. It’s a wholesome and satisfying meal perfect for any autumn day.
