Police investigating the murder of Sarah Everard have sealed off a new site some 30 miles from where her body was found.

Met Police detectives have cordoned off a large area in Sandwich, Kent, with the search focussing on a waterside path and a recycling bin.

Officers have been seen along a pathway next to a stream, and have set up a base in the town centre, KentOnline reports.

Police wouldn't comment on the area of investigation, but the local council confirmed that the pathway had been taped off.

The council statement read: "Sandwich Town Council is in contact with Kent Police on behalf of the Metropolitan Police in relation to ongoing investigations associated to the murder of Sarah Everard.

"Police have requested that residents do not gather trying to ascertain information or details.

"The police have cordoned off the Rope Walk between Malcolm Waites Garage/Cow Leas Meadow all the way through town."

Sarah, 33, was last seen walking home in Clapham, south London on March 3.

Her body was found in woods near Ashford, Kent, more than a week later, with police formally identifying her the next day using dental records.
