Bus CCTV allegedly led to murder arrest of suspect in Sarah Everard case

A London bus captured CCTV footage which provided a fresh line of inquiry in Sarah Everard's suspected abduction and murder investigation, it is claimed.

Another report claims a motorist's dashcam picked up a car linked to the suspect and was shown to the police, Mirror reports.

Serving Metropolitan Police officer Wayne Couzens is being quizzed by cops following the discovery of human remains in a wooded area near Ashford, Kent.

Marketing executive Ms Everard was last seen alive 50 miles away in London on the night of March 3.

Ms Everard, 33, was walking from a friend's house in Clapham to her home in Brixton when she vanished at about 9.30pm, and it is suspected she was attacked by a stranger.

The Telegraph has claimed that the fresh line of inquiry came from a CCTV camera fixed to a bus that had been driving on the same route Ms Everard is known to have taken before she disappeared.

A car linked to the murder suspect was allegedly spotted on a motorist’s dashcam near to where Ms Everard was last seen and was tracked by ANPR cameras, the Sun reported.

She has been described as "beautiful", "sensible" and a "lovely girl" by friends and family who are now trying to come to terms with the fact that human remains were found on Wednesday.

Officials were working to identify the remains, which were found as police searched an abandoned golf and paintball centre near Ashford.

Shortly after returning home from a shift in London, married dad-of-two Couzens, 49, was arrested on Tuesday night on suspicion of kidnap and murder, and a separate allegation of indecent exposure.

Neighbours claim police had the home of the officer under surveillance in the hours before the arrest.

A woman in her 30s, who was arrested at the same address, is also being questioned by detectives on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Scotland Yard said the murder suspect was not on duty when Ms Everard vanished and currently remains in custody.

A Met Police spokesperson told the Daily Star: "The investigation into the murder of Sarah Everard remains ongoing and continues to assess and investigate multiple strands of evidence. We are not prepared to give a running commentary on individual aspects but will update when there are any significant developments."
