Police say they've had 20 new calls and emails after an appeal 20 years after the murder of a Norfolk teenager.

16-year-old Natalie Pearman's body was found by the side of a road in Norwich in 1992.

Despite DNA evidence her killer has never been found and on the 20th anniversary of her death police launched a new appeal for information.

Now officers say that appeal has lead to 20 new calls and emails.

DCI Andy Guy said: “We have had an encouraging response to the anniversary appeal regarding Natalie’s death with around 20 calls and emails into our office since the appeal last week and are consequently pursuing some lines of enquiry. We welcome any new information or leads that may help explain the circumstances surrounding her death. I’d reiterate what I said earlier – just one piece of information could hold the key to solving this murder case. No matter how insignificant they think it might be, I’d urge them to call us. In addition, there are people who know or strongly suspect who was responsible and I’m sure that plays heavily on their conscience. Anyone with information should contact MIT cold case team at Norfolk Constabulary on 01953 424520 or 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
