Images of witnesses who police believe might have vital information to help investigate Helen Anderson's murder have been released.

The body of Ms Anderson, who lived in Finsbury Park, was found by a member of the public in undergrowth on a slip road near the A3 in Guildford on August 23.

Detectives are hoping that the individuals in four CCTV still images could help them piece together Helen's movements before her death.
