Dermot O’Leary, the radio and television presenter from Colchester, has commented on the recent murder in his former home town.

Mr O’Leary, 41, who started his career at Radio Essex, said he was “so sad” to hear of the death of Saudi Arabian student Nahid Amlania, who was found unconscious in an alleyway off Avon Way in Greenstead on Tuesday morning.

The former Big Brother’s Little Brother presenter, tweeted: “So sad to hear about the stabbing in my old home town of Colchester. Hope the town unites to find the attacker.”

Police this afternoon revealed that Ms Almania, who was living in Colchester while studying at the University of Essex, had been stabbed 16 times in a “brutal and savage attack”.
