The young woman brutally murdered in Finsbury Park has been named as 22-year-old Iuliana Tudos.

A major investigation is under way after her body was discovered in the north London park on Wednesday afternoon, several hundred metres from her home.

Iuliana was last seen by friends at around 8pm on Christmas Eve, when she went to get a bus home from Camden.

She was due to meet them at a friend’s home in Enfield, north-east London, later that evening before spending Christmas Day there, but never arrived.

Police said her next of kin, who are abroad, have been informed.

On Thursday an area of the north-east corner of the park, close to a baseball pitch, was cordoned off as murder detectives investigated how she died.
