“We have now launched a murder investigation and a team of detectives will be speaking to witnesses over the coming hours and days. As part of that I want to appeal to anyone who might have information that could help us – please come forward and speak to my officers.

“I can’t speculate on the motive for this crime, but at this early stage there is nothing to suggest there is a threat to the wider student population.”
