In what police describe as a “devastating incident” a murder enquiry has been launched after the death of a 10-year-old girl in Horsell near Woking.

The girl’s body was found after police officers were called to an address in Hammond Road, Horsell, at about 02.50am on Thursday following a safety concern.

On arrival, a 10-year-old girl was found dead inside the property. Her family has been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.

Three people detectives want to speak to in connection with the incident are believed to have left the UK.

A spokesperson for the force said no-one else had been injured, and no arrests had been made. A post-mortem examination will be carried out on Tuesday.
