Police are continuing to investigate the murder of 33-year-old Laura Jayne Stuart in Denbigh a week after her tragic death.

In the early hours of this morning, North Wales Police carried out inquiries in the town to identify anyone who may have been out socialising exactly a week ago when Laura was attacked in Love Lane.

Officers asked people to complete a brief questionnaire.

Despite an individual charged and remanded we still need to hear from anyone who can assist and particularly anyone who may know the whereabouts of the knife used. I am therefore repeating my request to anyone in the immediate area of Love Lane Denbigh and en-route to, and around, Denbigh Castle to check their property for any trace of the knife and to contact Police immediately if one is found but to leave it for officers to recover. It's worth adding that specialist police search officers have checked local authority refuge bins before collection last Monday but the knife remains outstanding.

Residents and business owners are being asked to check any CCTV for any suspicious activity during the early hours of Saturday 12th August, particularly around 4am.

Anyone with information should contact 101.
