Kate Bushell murder: Best friend went 'numb'

A friend of murdered schoolgirl Kate Bushell said she was "numb" when she heard her best friend had been murdered.

The 14-year-old's throat had been cut while she was walking her neighbour's dog near her home in Exwick, Devon, in 1997.

Police have released new information about orange fibres found at the scene in an attempt to catch her killer.

More than 100 of the fibres were found on her body, predominately used in non-fluorescent workwear such as boiler suits, aprons and gloves.

Inside Out South West is on BBC One on Monday 6 November at 19:30 GMT and on the iPlayer for 30 days thereafter.
