Detectives investigating the murder of Catherine Wells-Burr are appealing for more information from the public.

It follows reports of a figure seen at the site of the car fire, which was set in a lane off the A358 near Ashill in Ilminster earlier this month.

Catherine's body was found inside the car on the morning of September the 12th.

I am extremely keen to speak to anyone who saw a person at the site of the car fire in which we discovered Catherine's body.This person was in the area before the fire was lit, and was seen to then walk along the left hand verge towards Taunton immediately after.It is imperative that we speak to anyone who saw this person, before or after the fire, or if you are that person please come forward and speak to us.
