More than 300 people have contacted detectives investigating the murder of Joanna Yeates in the past 24 hours, police said.

The calls to the Operation Braid incident room have been made since filming started on a reconstruction of the 25-year-old’s final movements.

The tragic landscape architect’s last journey, which started after she left work on December 17, was retrodden by an actress and filmed for BBC’s Crimewatch.

The reconstruction focused on what she did after she left her firm, BDP, in Bristol city centre.

She went first to the Bristol Ram pub on Park Street in Bristol City centre, where she had Christmas drinks with work colleagues.

She spent around two hours socialising with her friends before leaving at around 8pm to make the 30-minute walk home to the ground floor flat in Canynge Road, Clifton, that she shared with her boyfriend Greg Reardon, 27.

Seen on CCTV in a Waitrose supermarket at the Clifton Triangle, she then went to a Tesco Express in Clifton village where she bought a pizza.

Detectives said Miss Yeates had made it home to her flat because her shoes, coat, mobile phone, purse and keys were found there – although the pizza, the wrapping and its box are still missing.

During the filming of the reconstruction, the actress playing the university graduate entered the Tesco Express on Regent Street in Clifton village.

She was wearing the same cream-coloured coat that Miss Yeates was wearing on the night she disappeared and she was seen buying the pizza.
