The death of a woman whose body was found in a Fife caravan is being treated as murder by police.

Carol-Anne Taggart, from Dunfermline, went missing on 22 December.

The 54-year-old's body was found on Monday at the Pettycur caravan site in Kinghorn, where she owned a caravan.

Police had previously carried out a detailed search of Ms Taggart's home in Hill of St Margaret. A 30-year-old man has been charged in connection with Ms Taggart's death.

He is due to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court at a later date.

The family of Carol-Anne Taggart said: "Carol-Anne was our mother and grandmother and will be sadly missed by family and friends."

Det Ch Insp Keith Hardie, of Police Scotland, said: "Throughout this inquiry we had always hoped to trace Carol-Anne and return her home safe and well.

"However, following the discovery of her body we believe her death to be suspicious and a man is currently in police custody.

"I would like to thank the public for their assistance and support during our investigation and would urge anyone who believes they may still have information, but has yet to contact police, to do so immediately."
