'Vital'

Det Insp Cammy Miller said: "Extensive inquiries are being carried out to gather as much information about what happened, with detectives examining CCTV and speaking to local residents.

"Despite the early hour, it was daylight and from CCTV we can see that there were a number of members of the public in the area walking dogs and going about their daily business.
