Officers have released footage of the teenager walking past Premier Convenience store on Wimpson Lane at 9.06am on Wednesday, July 25 - a day before her body was found at Southampton Sports Centre.

The 13-year-old is also seen walking along Coxford Road near Southampton General Hospital at 9.22am.

Police have previously released CCTV showing Lucy walking past Tesco Express, at the corner of Coxford Road and Lordswood Road, at 9.28am.

Officers believe Lucy left her home in Mansel Road East shortly before 9am.

Detective Superintendent Paul Barton, who is leading the investigation, said: "These CCTV images show Lucy walking purposefully in the direction of the General Hospital shortly after she left her home in Mansel Road East.

"Perhaps you were on your way to a hospital appointment that morning and saw Lucy, but did not think anything of it at the time.

“You may have seen her near the hospital or after she went past the Tesco Express further along Coxford Road.

“You’ll see that a number 17 bus passed Lucy near the hospital. Were you on that bus and did you see her later on?

“It’s never too late to get in touch - your piece of information could make the difference in finding Lucy’s killer.”

If you find anything that could be linked to the investigation, please police immediately so we can deal with it appropriately.
