Update: Death toll rises to 27 in migrant boat tragedy.
Police have arrested a man on suspicion of murdering Sabina Nessa.
On Thursday evening, investigators released CCTV images of a man they urgently wished to speak to and one of a silver car they believed he had access to.
The latest arrest came 48 hours after police appealed for help to trace a man captured on CCTV images taken near where Nessa was found dead.
A 12-second video released by the Met shows the balding man wearing a black hooded coat and grey jeans looking over his shoulder and pulling at his hood as he walks down a footpath.
Nessa’s sister, Jebina Yasmin Islam, issued a statement on Friday evening before a rally at the East London Mosque – one of many vigils that took place across the country.
“We as a family are shocked by the murder of our sister, daughter and aunt to my girls. There are no words to describe how we are feeling as a family at the moment, We did not expect that something like [this] would ever happen to us. I urge everyone to walk on busy streets when walking home from work, school or a friend’s home. Please keep safe.
“I ask you to pray for our sister and make dua [supplication] for her. May Allah grant her paradise,” said her sister, Jebina Yasmin Islam.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
