The murder of a young woman discovered in a burning car was "tragic and brutal", detectives have said.
Police said they are treating 23-year-old Catherine Wells-Burr's death as suspicious and a murder inquiry has been launched after her body was found in a red Ford Focus car by firefighters yesterday.
Detective Chief Inspector Simon Crisp, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: "This is a tragic and brutal incident in which a young woman has needlessly lost her life.
"We are working to establish what happened in the early hours of yesterday morning that led to this car being set ablaze.
"I would like to appeal to anyone with any information about this incident to get in touch with us no matter how small you think that piece of information may be."
