Officers said two to three suspects had been spotted running from the Rover car, number plate V683 DPN, while it was on fire.

The vehicle may have been taken away for a time before being returned to the scene prior to the bank holiday weekend, police said.

Labour's Deputy Leader Harriet Harman has appealed for information about the killing.
