POLICE investigating the murder of a mother-of-four from Finsbury Park are urging anyone who saw a decommissioned red and white bus to get in touch with them.

The body of Helen Anderson, 41, was found by a member of the public on a slip road of the A3, near Guildford in Surrey, on August 23. Dane Messam, of Henry Road, Hackney, has been charged with murder.

Detectives from Surrey Police say Ms Anderson may have got on a double-decker bus before she was killed and are appealling for witnesses.

Detective Chief Inspector Emma Vicker said: “We are continuing to appeal for witnesses in relation to this investigation. In particular, we would like to speak to anyone who saw a decommissioned double-decker Brighton and Hove bus in the north London area between 7.30pm on August 20 and 3pm on August 23.

“We are also keen to speak to anyone who saw the same bus either driving or stationary in the Guildford area between the hours of 3am and 4am on 23 August. If you have any information which could help our investigation, please contact us straight away. You can also upload information straight to our Major Incident Public Portal.”
