Police have charged two brothers with the murder of a woman who disappeared on Christmas Eve.

Sameena Imam, 34, from Cardiff, was last seen outside the wholesaler Costco in Coventry where she worked at about 16:00 GMT on 24 December.

West Midlands Police said Roger Cooper, 40, from Coventry and David Cooper, from Leicester, will appear before Birmingham magistrates on Saturday.

Despite extensive searches, Ms Imam has not been since Christmas Eve.

Supt Mark Payne said: "This is a significant development, our thoughts are with Sameena's family and friends at this time."

He added that the investigation is still ongoing and anyone with information is urged to call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
