A body has been found by police searching for a missing Polish woman who was living in Warwickshire.

Elzbieta Kinczyk (known as Ela), 23, of Leamington Spa, went missing after meeting a friend in Grove Place in the town on 6 June.

Forty officers were involved in the case and said a woman's body was found in Windmill Hill Lane, Chesterton. An identity has not been confirmed yet.

A 25-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Mrs Kinczyk lived with a sister and brother-in-law and was working in Leamington Spa to send money to her husband and five-year-old son Pactric in Poland.

An area off Harbury Lane, between Leamington Spa and Bishops Tachbrook, has been cordoned off since Tuesday in the search for Mrs Kinczyk.
