The investigation into the murder of a Saudi Arabian student in Essex has "not gone cold", police have said.

Nahid Almanea, 31, was found fatally stabbed on the Salary Brook Trail in Colchester on 17 June. No one has been charged in connection with her death.

Essex Police said detectives had been "working around the clock" on the case.

The force has appealed again for anyone nearby at the time of the killing to come forward.

'Significant progress'

"The commitment to solve Nahid's murder is as strong today as it was three months ago," said Det Chf Insp Mark Hall from the Kent and Essex serious crime directorate.

"We still have a large amount of officers working on the investigation.

"Over the past few weeks we have made a significant amount of progress.

"I remain confident we will identify the person or people responsible for her murder."

The charity Crimestoppers is offering a reward of £10,000 for help in solving the case.
