On Friday, Adrian Prout took police to Redhill Farm at Redmarley, in Gloucestershire, to show them where he had buried his wife's body.

Search dogs were brought in to help find her remains on Thursday, the fourth day of the search.

Det Supt Simon Atkinson, of Gloucestershire Police, said the remains had not been formally identified, but that Mrs Prout's family had been told.
