A health trust has begun an investigation into events leading up to the death of a student whose body was found in the boot of a burning car.

Sussex Partnership runs Mill View Hospital, Hove, from where Janet Muller was reported missing on 12 March.

The University of Brighton student was found in the car in Ifield, near Crawley, a day later.

The NHS trust said it was working closely with the police and had also launched its own investigation.

Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw, 26, from Beckenham, south London, has been charged with Ms Muller's murder.

A second man has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

The cause of Ms Muller's death was smoke inhalation.
