Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met's Specialist Crime Command, said: "Sabina’s family have been informed of this significant development and they continue to be supported by specialist officers.”

Sabina had been walking to meet a friend at a pub near her home when she was attacked in Kidbrooke, south-east London, on September 17.

Her body was discovered by a member of the public the following day, having been hidden under a pile of leaves.

Two men were separately arrested on suspicion of her murder but were subsequently released under investigation.

Tributes have poured in for the teacher with a book of condolences opened up at a community centre near to where she lived

The OneSpace centre has set up a book for visitors to write messages to remember Sabina.

One read: "Please know that we are here, we will continue to stand with you in solidarity, as a community, as mums, fathers, sisters, cousins, aunts and grandparents."
