Waste collections suspended following murder

Waste and recycling collections in parts of Surrey have been suspended until further notice while police search for evidence following a murder.

The body of a woman in her 30s was found in her home on High Street, Nutfield, on Monday night and a murder investigation was subsequently launched by Surrey Police.

As a result of this investigation, Tandridge District Council has been asked to suspend all rubbish collections to Mid Street, South Nutfield, and surrounding roads while a search for evidence takes place. This suspension of services will affect around 600 properties. Rubbish collections usually take place weekly on a Thursday, and the council has apologised to residents for any inconvenience caused by the disruption.

It is unaware whether police would be looking in people’s bins for evidence. A spokesman for the council said: “We don’t have any further details. We are responding to a request from Surrey Police which has said this will help them search for evidence.”
