A second man arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenager whose body was found in a canal 22 years ago has been released.

Lindsay Jo Rimer, 13, disappeared on 7 November 1994 when she went to buy cornflakes from a shop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Her body was found a mile from the town centre in Rochdale Canal the following April.

A 68-year-old man from Bradford was arrested by police on Tuesday morning.

Lindsay's body was found by two canal workers who were checking the water for debris.

One of them was Andy Glover, from Mytholmroyd, who said at first sight he thought it was a sheep but then realised it was the missing teenager.

On the day Lindsay was last seen, she left her home in Cambridge Street at about 22:00 GMT and met her mother at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge.

The last known sighting of her was captured on CCTV 20 minutes later as she bought cornflakes on Crown Street.

In April, police said a new DNA profile had been identified which it hoped would lead them to identify the killer.
