A new appeal for information about the murder of a Saudi Arabian student in Essex has been made on the BBC Crimewatch programme.

Nahid Almanea, 31, was found stabbed on the Salary Brook Trail in Colchester at 10:40 BST on 17 June.

She had been studying English at the University of Essex and lived in nearby Woodrow Way.

Police hope that people visiting Colchester on that day may help their investigation.

Det Supt Steve Worron said: "Featuring the appeals on Crimewatch will really help us to capture information from people who may not have seen some of the local media reports.

"They may not be Colchester residents but may have been visiting the area for work or social reasons on the day Nahid was murdered."
