Police investigating the death of Sara Sharif have translated their appeal into Urdu to reach Pakistani nationals.

Sara's body was found in her home in Woking on 10 August, a day after her family members flew to Pakistan.

Detectives are displaying posters in English and Urdu at the Surrey town's railway station and taxi ranks.

Officers who are fluent in Urdu are also supporting the investigation team to help translate information given by members of the public.

Surrey Police have also produced a video-format appeal in Urdu.

Detectives hope to reach members of the Pakistani community living in Woking and for whom English is not their first language.

An international manhunt has been launched for Sara's father Urfan Sharif, 41, stepmother Beinash Batool, 29, and uncle Faisal Malikand, 28.
