Police investigating historic crime at Crawley school appeal for help


Police are seeking a woman who may have valuable information to help an investigation of an historic crime at a Crawley school.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Detectives have been told that a ‘Katy Tyler’ was a pupil at St Andrew’s Primary School in Furnace Green in the early 1970s.”

Detective Constable Rees Hopcraft said: “There is no suggestion at all that she was involved in any crime, but she may have valuable information, even though perhaps not necessarily realising it. If you are Katy or if you know where she may be now, we would like to hear from you as soon as possible.

“You can contact us via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk, or call us on 101, quoting serial 1085 of 06/10/15 All information will be treated in confidence.”

The spokesman added: “Police emphasise that the investigation has no connection with current or recent pupils, parents or staff at the school and there are no current safeguarding concerns.”
