Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Bellamy, said: “We’re grateful for the support and information we have received from members of the public so far and would encourage people to continue to come forward.

“If you do not want to report information to police, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously.

"The information you pass on could really prove to be crucial, no matter how insignificant it seems, it all helps us to build a picture and could help bring justice for Tamba’s family.”

Police have appealed for information, including dash-cam footage, regarding three vehicles of interest. They are now appealing for information about the recovered Audi A5.

The other vehicles police are currently interested in are a grey Skoda Karoq with the registration YB69; a white Toyota IQ with the registration AO59 UOX; and a grey T-Cross with the registration GK20 FXR.
