Police investigating the murder of Sarah Payne have found fragments which they believe could have been part of the schoolgirl's clothing.

A passer-by found part of a shoe in the West Chiltington area, just a few miles from where the eight-year-old's body was found in a field near Pulborough, West Sussex.

Detectives are also examining cloth discovered at Bramber Castle, Bramber, a few miles further to the south-east of Pulborough.

Nick Sandford, spokesman for Sussex police, said: "The material has been found at Bramber and we are working to try to confirm whether it is linked with our case or not. Searches are continuing in that area.

"In the West Chiltington area, part of a shoe has been recovered and again, we are working to confirm whether it is connected with this inquiry. Searching is still going on in that area also."

Mr Sandford said the operation to question motorists on the A29 overnight had been a success. Just under 2,000 interviews were carried out and some new information had been gathered.

He said drivers had been very supportive despite the inevitable traffic delays.
