POLICE investigating the murder of Valerie Graves are running DNA screening today.

Sussex Police are reminding men who work or live in, or visit, Bosham, in West Sussex, that the DNA screening facility is open in the village until 8pm.

The screening is taking place at the Millstream Hotel in Bosham Lane.

Anyone who attends is asked to bring along photo identification, a passport or the photo driving licence.

An officer will fill out some details, check their identification and take a photo of them. Their thumbprint will be taken and a swab will be taken from inside their mouth.

On December 30, 2013, 55-year-old mother and grandmother Valerie was found brutally murdered in her bedroom in Smugglers Lane, Bosham. She had been staying at the property while the owners were away over the Christmas period.

Additional screening will take place every day until Thursday and then again from Monday, February 2, until Saturday February 7, and from Tuesday, February 10, until Sunday, February 15. All sessions are from 10am to 8pm.
