The Metropolitan Police arrested a 38-year-old man in Lewisham yesterday (Thursday 23 September) and he is being questioned in custody.

This is the second arrest that has been made in connection with the murder, with a man in his 40s previously released under further investigation.

Police also issued CCTV images of an unknown man walking in Pegler Square, Kidbrooke, on the evening Nessa was killed, as well as an image of a silver vehicle they believe he has access to.

Investigators urgently want to speak to the man, and are asking anyone who recognises him or the vehicle to contact them immediately.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met's Specialist Crime Command, said: "Our team have been working tirelessly to find the person responsible for Sabina's murder and this has included an extensive trawl of CCTV, work which remains ongoing.

"We would ask anyone - especially those in Kidbrooke and the wider area of Lewisham and Greenwich - to take a careful look at these images to check whether you know who this man is or have seen him over recent days.

"Any information as to his identity or whereabouts could be vital for our investigation so we are asking you to share this image far and wide to ensure as many people as possible see it."

Nessa's cousin, Zubel Ahmed, previously said that her parents are 'inconsolable' after their loss.

In an interview with the BBC, he said: "We are all truly devastated. Her parents are absolutely shocked, they're inconsolable still and understandably so, to hear of their daughter being taken away from them by some cowardly man is just horrific.

"She honestly was the most caring person, kindest, sweetest girl you could meet. Sabina's heart was as good as gold, she never had a bad word to say about anyone. Her sister is going to miss her so much."
