Police investigating the murder of a Nottingham mother have said there has been a good response to a new appeal.

Caroline Coyne, 26, was found with head injuries in Thorneywood Mount on 23 July. A £20,000 reward has been offered to catch her killer.

New CCTV footage of a person they want to identify along with pictures of Ms Coyne were displayed on a mobile screen around the city on Friday.

Officers said there had been several important calls to the incident room.

Ms Coyne's body was found in the St Ann's area the morning after she left a party in Daybrook.

New information

Police have traced some of her movements, which took her through Breckhill Road and then Porchester Road, in the opposite direction to where she lived.

The investigation has focused on person in a light-coloured hooded top, with trainers and a backpack, who was in the area where Ms Coyne died, but has not yet come forward.

Det Ch Insp Tony Heydon, who is leading the investigation, said: "It has been fantastic, we have had a lot of interest from the public.

"A lot of people have come forward with information and shown a lot of interest in the images, which is exactly what I wanted to achieve.

"I want people to see this footage, keep looking at this footage and see whether they can identify this person."

The pictures have been viewed more than 1,000 times on YouTube.

Mr Heydon said officers would be analysing the new information over the weekend.

Ms Coyne, who had shoulder-length auburn hair, was wearing blue jeans with a brown belt, a pink T-shirt with FCUK printed in black on the front, and pink and white trainers.

A 26-year-old man arrested in connection with her murder has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
