Police are at the scene this morning, where exactly a week ago a 23-year-old woman's body was found in a burning car.

They want to speak to motorists who may have information about the death of Catherine Wells-Burr. People travelling along the A358 will be asked to cast their minds back to Wednesday [12th] when Miss Wells-Burr's body was found.

The officer leading the investigation is keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time - in particular anyone who saw a red Ford Focus 5 door hatch back in company with another vehicle.

Today, Catherine's 31-year-old boyfriend Rafal Nowak will appear in court charged with conspiracy to murder her. Mr Nowak's former partner was in court yesterday to face the same charge.
