A woman arrested in connection with Sarah Everard’s death has had her bail extended, police have confirmed.

The marketing executive went missing on March 3 while walking home after visiting a friend in Clapham, south London.

The 33-year-old’s body was found hidden in an area of woodland near a disused leisure site in Ashford a week later, on March 10.

Serving Metropolitan Police officer Wayne Couzens, 48, from Deal, has been charged with her kidnap and murder.

The Metropolitan Police said a woman in her 30s, who was arrested at the same time as Couzens, on suspicion of assisting an offender, was released on bail to return to a police station on a date in mid-April.

She has now been further bailed to return on a date in early June, the force said.

A provisional date has been set for Couzens’ trial at the Old Bailey for October 25.

A plea hearing is set for July 9.
