The death of former Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones is to be reviewed following new evidence, it has been revealed.

Police in Sussex were handed new information connected to the musician's untimely death 40 years ago.

Mr Jones, was found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool at a house in Cotchford farm, Hartfield, East Sussex.

An inquest recorded a verdict of death by misadventure but speculation continued that he was murdered.

But he added it was too early to launch a fresh investigation.

FWIW: I recently saw a film that claims that Jone's builder / houseman confessed on his death bed. Alledgedly enraged by Brian's homosexual pass at him.
