Body of woman found in hunt for Joanna Yeates

Police looking for missing Bristol architect Joanna Yeates have sealed off an area near a golf course after the body of a woman was found.

Officers closed Longwood Lane in Failand, North Somerset, after the discovery was made by a couple walking their dogs on Christmas morning.

Chief Superintendent Jon Stratford said: "I can confirm that Joanna Yeates' parents have been informed of this development. They are naturally very, very distressed. Our thoughts are with them at this very difficult time."
