A man arrested over the murder of a homeless woman whose bones were washed up on an Essex island has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Police have started a murder inquiry into the death of Angela Millington, 33, from Southend last June.

Her remains were found on Foulness Island in June by a group of ramblers and identified using DNA tests.

The 66-year-old man, from Eastwood in Southend, must report back to police on 8 June.

There had been no definitive sighting of Ms Millington, who had no fixed address, since November 2013 when she visited a housing officer and withdrew money from her bank account.

Anyone with any information about what may have happened is asked to contact police.
