    Sussex Police investigating the murder of Valerie Graves are reminding men with connections to Bosham that a DNA screening facility will be open in the village from 10am to 8pm tomorrow as well as on the following four weekdays...

    More than 500 men have already come forward since the screening began on Wednesday and detectives hope others will choose Sunday as a convenient day to come...

    Police have issued guarantees that they will only use the samples obtained to check against this particular crime and their DNA profile will not appear on any database.

    This is a strange one. No-one in the house heard anything yet the attack sounds sustained.
