Favourite Milly tune recorded
Milly Dowler disappeared on her way home from school in March 2002
A song has been recorded in memory of murdered schoolgirl Amanda Dowler involving police officers who worked on the case.

A version of Build Me Up Buttercup has been recorded to raise money for Milly's Fund - a charity set up by the 13-year-old's parents.

The song, which was originally a hit for the Foundations in the 1960s, was one of the teenager's favourites.

The Foundations' lead singer Colyn Young teamed up with officers from Surrey Police to create the new version.

Soap opera

It will be sold at a charity cricket match which is due to be held next month.

It could then be released to record stores after that.

Amanda, known as Milly disappeared on her way back from school in Walton-On-Thames in March 2002.

Her remains were discovered in Yateley Heath Woods in Hampshire six months later in September.

A safety video commissioned by Milly's Fund has been provided for every school in the country.

The video, entitled Watch Over Me, is a five-part soap opera aims to show children how to plan their personal safety.
