Two London men have been arrested after the body of a woman was found dumped by the side of a busy dual carriageway.

A murder probe was launched after a member of the public made the grisly discovery on an A3 northbound sliproad at Guildford on Monday at 3pm.

The as-yet-unidentified victim was probably known to her killers, Surrey Police said on Friday as they announced the arrests.

Murder detectives believe the woman was killed elsewhere and her body brought to Guildford where she was dumped between 3am and 4.30am on Monday.

A 52-year-old man with links to the Finsbury Park, North London area was arrested on Tuesday (24 August), on suspicion of murder.

A 51-year-old man from Hackney was also arrested on conspiracy to commit murder. They remain in custody.

Senior Investigating Officer DCI Emma Vickers said: “I would also like to reassure local residents that we believe the two men we have arrested were known to the victim, and continue to reassure the Surrey public that there is a dedicated team of officers working tirelessly on this investigation to ensure that whoever is responsible for this heinous crime is brought to justice.”

Surrey Police are asking anyone who saw any vehicles or person(s) behaving suspiciously in the areas and times mentioned, or if you have any dashcam, CCTV or smart doorbell footage that may help to contact them on 101 quoting PR/45210089588.
