Detectives investigating the murder of a woman in Bournemouth are appealing for the public’s help to trace a car – with a man being arrested.

At 3.26pm yesterday, police discovered the body of a woman aged in her early 40s in a flat in Avon Close in the Springbourne area after concerns were raised that she had not arrived at work as expected.

The circumstances of her death are suspicious and a murder investigation, is underway.

At 10.15pm last night a 52-year-old man, who was known to the victim, was arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries.

We urgently need to trace a Peugeot 308 dark grey estate hire car with the registration HN14 HWC which we believe travelled in the Dorset and Hampshire areas and may be of significant interest to our investigation.

This vehicle has damage above the wheel arch on the rear off-side following a previous accident and I am releasing a photo of this damage in the hope that it might jog someone’s memory.
