“However, we cannot do this alone and I’d appeal to any witnesses or anyone with information to get in touch with us as a matter of urgency.

“Any information, however insignificant you think it is, is vital to our investigation. Any information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4622 or police on 101 quoting 6806/01AUG.
