Detectives investigating the murder of Sabina Nessa have arrested a man in Sussex this morning (September 26).

The Met Police said the suspect, a 38-year-old man, was detained around 3am on Sunday morning at an address in East Sussex and is being held in police custody.

The arrest comes following a CCTV appeal in which investigators released images of man they wished to speak to – and one of a car they believe he had access to.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met's Specialist Crime Command, said: “Sabina’s family have been informed of this significant development and they continue to be supported by specialist officers.”

Sabina, 28, was found dead on Saturday (September 18) near the OneSpace community centre in Cator Park in Kidbrooke Village, Greenwich.

Police believe the primary school teacher lay undiscovered for hours, having been killed at around 8.30pm the night before.

Ms Nessa had been walking to meet a friend at a pub near her home when she was attacked in Cator Park, Kidbrooke, on September 17.

Her body was discovered by a member of the public the next day, having been hidden under a pile of leaves, it was reported.

Two men were separately arrested on suspicion of her murder but were subsequently released under investigation.
