    The arrest is in the Finchfield area, which isn’t far away and would be likely that the Bridgnorth Road is the nearest road the countryside/secluded area (although this is a busy road).

    Forensics tents were seen outside a house in that area. Looks like they had more of an idea which is perhaps why it wasn’t national news.

    That thought did cross my mind also, although I have heard of murders where the victim has been burnt, who didn't know the perp.

    Me too, its bad enough murdering someone, let alone burning them, and it seems she was really young aswell.

    I'd imagine there was quite a bit of cctv in the area that would easily pick up traffic in the early hours

    Thats an interesting read, I hope she was deceased before being burned, I can't think of a worse way to die.

    It is possible, that coming from Finchfield area, you’d be picked up by cameras at the Mermaid Pub, and some of the larger houses on the way out of the city have cctv pointing at their drive entrances so you would be lucky not be caught at some point.

    If it is him he certainly didn't drive very far before stopping at the lay-by ... it seems panicked ..there are so many lanes around far less public

    I agree and I think in this day and age, there are cameras probably on almost every street or main high street anyway.

    I wonder then if he wasn't very familiar with the area, you'd think he'd know the places that were really secluded. Others have posted that Bridgenorth road is quite busy.

    The perps who set this woman on fire and left her to burn in agony on church steps days before Xmas, have still not been apprehended...

    Local News just reported the arrest was made at Cranford Rd Finchfield.
    Looking on street view it looks a very "nice street"

    A local FB group said there was a forensics tent outside a house in that road yesterday evening, so there must’ve been something for them to go there so quickly.

    I've been Mia for some time but this has made me come back. Its very very local to me, in fact I used to live on the road just up from there
    I would say that that area of road isn't overly busy in the early hours of the morning and there is little to no lighting there, with fields on both sides. I think the initial reports from the police stated "suspicious activity" was reported to them so I'm guessing someone maybe saw something while driving past.

    The lay-by is as other have said, quite pot hole Ridden, with fields and hedges on both sides and a couple of bins. I think from looking at the pictures the tent was put up immediately over one of the bins.

    Not many houses in the immediate vicinity but I know police did door to door on the closest streets including Sabrina Road and asked for all door cams and cctv in the area. There are quite a few as it's thought of as quite an affluent area. I read on one of the neighbourhood watch pages I am on that someone had picked up a milk float going past on the road around that time and had suggested to police they may have seen something.

    Tent was put up in Cranford Road yesterday. Property is about 1.5 miles away so not far at all. I think given the fact they are yet to identify the poor girl and had little to go on yesterday regarding age and ethnicity it's likely that something was picked up on camera..maybe a car? Which has led them to that address
