The mother of the missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague has been on BBC Two's Victoria Derbyshire show.

Mr McKeague, was serving at RAF Honington in Suffolk, disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds on 24 September 2016, when he was 23 years old.

Police have searched through the relevant part of a landfill at Milton outside Cambridge - working on the theory he had been in a refuse bin in Bury, which had been removed by binmen.

Suffolk Police has said this week that there were "no realistic lines of inquiry left", but they investigation would continue if new lines of inquiry or evidence emerged.

Nicola Urquhart, Corrie's mother, has been talking on the BBC show and said she did not believe the inquiry had run its course.

"You don't just stop because it's too difficult to find an answer," she said.
