A man due to stand trial in connection to a missing woman from Hull has had the charges against him dropped.

Renata Antczak, 49, was last seen near her home in the city after dropping her daughter off at school on 25 April.

Robert Lipinski, 45, was accused of two counts of conspiracy to administer a noxious substance, but the prosecution offered no evidence against him.

At Hull Crown Court on Thursday, Mr Lipinski, of Emerald Grove, was told he was free to leave.

Ms Antczak's dentist husband Majid Mustafa, 47, still faces two counts of the same charge.

Police previously said the mother's disappearance was being treated as a "potential murder inquiry".

The 49-year-old Polish national took her 11-year-old daughter to Broadcare Primary School in the family's black Mercedes e220 at 08:45 BST before returning home.

She was last seen walking near her home in Beamsley Way at about 13:00 BST.

A further hearing involving Mr Mustafa is due to take place at the same court on 8 January.
