New images in lay-by murder case

More CCTV images released in bid to trace witnesses
Police investigating the murder of a woman whose body was dumped beside a road have released more CCTV pictures in a bid to find key witnesses.

The body of Yuk Ying Phuah, 42, from Wembley, north-west London, was found on a grass verge by the A20 in Sidcup, Kent, on 9 August last year.

Her body was found partially clothed and covered by an unzipped sleeping bag.

The mother-of-two, who was a restaurant owner, had been suffocated.

The images show people who walked past the spot where her body lay overnight.

Detective Inspector Colin Dell, of the Metropolitan Police Serious Crime Directorate, said: "If you recognise yourself in one of these photos, I'd ask you to contact me in case you can assist us with our inquiries.

Abduction reported

"Or maybe you recognise one of the people in the images as a relative or friend?"

Mrs Phuah's husband had left their home with their children, aged 13 and 15 years, on 8 August to go to a family business in Wiltshire.

When he arrived back home at around midnight, the house was in chaos so he called police and reported a burglary.

Mrs Phuah had not kept in touch with the family during the day and did not turn up for an appointment in Middlesex, so her husband also reported a possible abduction.
