Police are hunting a man who raped a 22-year-old student nurse after offering her a lift in Edgbaston, Birmingham. She escaped from the car after the attack. The rapist is described as black, in his 20s, 5ft 7in, with a thin moustache.
Detectives hunting Jill Dando's killer are investigating a link with the murder of 33-year-old Karen Reed who was shot on her doorstep in Woking, Surrey, five years ago. It is thought Mrs Reed was mistaken for her sister Alison Ponting, a former BBC World Service producer. She had been married to Gagic Ter-Ogannysan, an Armenian who had gangland connections.
