An appeal to trace a UK-registered vehicle following the murder of four people in the French Alps has led to several calls being made to police.

Saad al-Hilli and his wife Iqbal, from Claygate, Surrey, her mother Suhaila al-Allaf and French cyclist Sylvain Mollier were shot on 5 September.

On the BBC's Crimewatch programme, Surrey Police said they wanted to speak to the owner of a right-hand drive 4x4.

Officers said it was possibly a grey or black BMW X5.

It was being driven on the Combre d'Ire Road in Chevaline, near Annecy, about 20 minutes before the shooting, the force said.

The family were on a camping holiday on the shores of Lake Annecy when they were attacked.

The al-Hilli's daughters Zeinab and Zeena survived.

Nobody has been held responsible for the deaths.
