Police investigating the murder of Julie Davison are appealing for more information in connection with her death.

Officers are asking anyone who finds any discarded clothing or footwear in the Whitby or Scarborough area to contact them immediately.

They are also asking people to check their outbuildings and bins for signs of anyone living rough or any discarded personal items.**


Detective Chief Inspector Steve Smith, who is leading the investigation in North Yorkshire, said: "It is vital to our investigation that we piece together the suspect's movements over the past week.

" I am therefore reiterating the appeal for anyone who believes that have seen the suspect as he travelled across the region to contact us if they have not already done so."

Anyone with any information should contact Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
