British police said they had charged a man with the murder of a teacher found dead a short walk from her home.

Sabina Nessa, 28, left her home in Kidbrooke, south London, on the evening of 17 September to make the five-minute walk through a local park to a bar where she was due to meet a friend.

She never arrived and her body was found in the park the next afternoon.

Police said they had charged a 36-year-old man with murder.

He is due to appear at Willesden Magistrates' Court in London tomorrow.
