POLICE hunting the killer of Surrey schoolgirl Milly Dowler are currently sifting through replies from 6300 motorists who were stopped in Minley Road, Fleet, recently near where her body was found.

Police stopped all cars travelling both north and south on two separate days and completed or issued questionnaires. On two other days police stopped and spoke to all users of the woods including dog walkers, horse riders and joggers. A number of people were said to have provided "interesting information."

Sgt Jenny Harding said: "No one at all has complained - even those caught in congested traffic. The feeling seems to be that everyone is keen to do anything to help find Milly's murderer."

The police are also sorting through information from more than 1200 telephone calls. They have asked people who have not heard back to bear with them.
