A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Nottingham mother of two.

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.

A renewed appeal using CCTV images of a suspect, displayed on a mobile screen, was made on Friday.

The man, who is from the city, was arrested on Saturday and is currently in police custody for questioning.

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

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.

Officers said Friday's appeal had prompted a good response and a number of important calls had been received.

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.
