Missing Nida Ul-Naseer search widens in Newport

Missing teenager Nida Ul-Naseer was upset before her disappearance because her family's asylum-seeker status barred her from attending university.

Her sister Shamyla made an emotional appeal at a press conference for the 18-year-old from Newport to return.

Sixth-form student Nida, from Pill, whose family is appealing a failed asylum bid, disappeared 11 days ago.

Police are checking her phone, computer and bank account records and have also begun searching three sites in the city- the Transporter Bridge, Lysaght Institute, and Pill Millennium centre.
