A 51-year-old man from Swindon has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Becky Godden, who was 20 when she disappeared in late December 2002.

Her remains were later found on farmland in Gloucestershire in 2011.

Supt Sean Memory said: "We can confirm that a 51-year-old man from Swindon was arrested today on suspicion of the murder of Becky Godden, also known as Rebecca Godden Edwards.

"He has been interviewed and inquiries continue."

Miss Godden was last seen alive on 27 December 2002 in Swindon.
