Two people arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was found on a disused railway line in Liverpool have been bailed pending inquiries.

Paula Hounslea, 37, from West Derby, was last seen by her family when they went for a meal on 22 August 2009.

Her remains were found with burns in a disused fire pit next to the Liverpool Loopline in Fazakerley on 5 May.

Police said they arrested a 21-year-old woman from West Derby and a 20-year-old man from Bowring Park on Wednesday.

Forensic tests revealed the victim's body was placed in the pit some time between last autumn and the start of this year.

Her remains were discovered by a dog walker.
