Tonight, people are being asked to light candles on their doorsteps in tribute to murdered PCSO Julia James. 

It has been a week since the 53-year-old’s body was discovered in woodland near Dover, Kent. Police have yet to identify a motive for her killing and no arrests have been made. 

In a Facebook post, her daughter said she had been asked about a vigil and was “so grateful for people wanting to remember her.” 

But she wanted “all police resources to be concentrating on the investigation.”

“I am very conscious that any gathering would need to be policed if it was even allowed. I’ve discussed this with my family and we are in agreement that we would prefer all police resources to be concentrating on the investigation as there is so much work to be done,” the post read.

Those wanting to remember PSCO Julia James are being invited to light a candle and leave it on their doorstep at 19:00 BST. 

“This would be a beautiful nod to Mum in a way that doesn’t intrude on the police investigation,” she added.
