A man ‘armed with hammer’ attacked murdered teacher Sabina Nessa moments after she left her flat, according to a report.

The 28-year-old had been on her way to a date in a pub just a five minute walk from her London home last Friday.

It is thought she was pounced upon and struck with a heavy weapon on her doorstep before being taken to a nearby park.

Nessa's body was then found hidden under a pile of leaves by a dog walker, almost 24 hours after her planned date, the Mirror reports.

Metropolitan Police have described this as a 'shocking murder' which was captured on CCTV.

A 38-year-old suspect was arrested and is currently in custody being questioned.

Police have also released footage showing another man they'd like to speak to about the incident.

A vigil is due to be held tonight for Nessa who loved being a teacher and dreamed of moving to Dubai in the future to do so.

It has been organised by Reclaim The Streets, which campaigns to stop violence against women, and will be held at the primary school she worked at.

Headteacher for Rushey Green Primary School in Lewisham, London, Lisa Williams said: "She was a brilliant teacher; she was kind, caring and absolutely dedicated to her pupils.

"She had so much life ahead of her and so much more to give, and her loss is desperately sad."

Sabina Nessa's cousin, Zubel Ahmed, added that she "was the most caring person - kindest, sweetest girl you could meet."
