Callum Wheeler, 22, was found guilty of her murder on Monday.

That night, a plaque created in memory of Julia was removed from Aylesham village square, where it has lain since her death last year.

The ceramic slate - which had been placed on the Miners' Wheel memorial and bears the hashtag '#JusticeforJulia' - is said to have been taken away between 6.30pm and 9pm.

Police are now appealing for help tracing it.

Officers are carrying out enquiries into the circumstances to determine whether any criminal offences have been committed.

Dover District Commander, Chief Inspector Daniel Carter, said: "Local officers remain in the area as part of their ongoing work with the community and I would like to thank residents for their continued support and encourage anyone with information about the plaque to get in touch with us."

Anyone who has seen it, or has information, should call police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/94100/22.
