The force said that any new '˜information or intelligence' about a case '˜will always be assessed and investigated wherever possible'.

Michaela, a mum-of-one from Pitsmoor, was attacked after being picked off Corporation Street, where she was plying her trade, and driven to a car park on nearby Spitalfields, off Nursery Street.

Another sex worker raised the alarm and the first police officer at the scene, PC Richard Twigg, managed to get a description of the attacker from Michaela before she died.

She said her attacker was white, clean-shaven and wore a wedding ring.

He was around 38 years old, 6ft tall and was wearing a blue fleece and glasses.

Nobody has ever been charged over the death.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
