Met Police statement after a man is arrested over missing PC Gordon Semple

A man arrested on suspicion of murder by police investigating the disappearance of PC Gordon Semple is being questioned in custody.

The arrest came after human remains were found at a flat on the Peabody Estate in Southwark Street on Thursday.

The officer, who served in Westminster, was last seen on 1 April in the London Bridge area.

In a statement, Met Commander Alison Newcomb said: "This is a very sad day for Gordon's colleagues.

"There are many officers who have served with Gordon in London during his 30-year career who will acutely feel his loss."
