We have drone footage showing Suffolk police officers trawling through waste at a landfill site in Cambridgeshire in their ongoing search for missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague, who disappeared six months ago after a night out in Bury St Edmunds.

The 23-year-old’s mum, Nicola Urquhart believes it is only a matter of time before a body is found at the site after it was revealed there had been an error in the weight of waste collected from a bin in the Horseshoe area of Bury St Edmunds.
CCTV footage from the night of his disappearance shows Corrie entering the Horseshoe, which is off Brentgovel Street, but there is no trace of him leaving and he is not seen on any other CCTV cameras in the area.

A bin lorry later entered the area and removed a load of more than 100kg from a large refuse container, although it was initially thought just 11kg of waste had been collected.

The last known signal received from Corrie’s phone was from the Barton Mills area, near Mildenhall, at around 4.30am on Saturday, September 24. It is thought the phone was inside a vehicle, due to the speed it was travelling. The route it took from Bury St Edmunds matches that the bin lorry would have taken.

In the six months since Corrie vanished, police, volunteers and members of Corrie’s family have searched the area between Bury St Edmunds and RAF Honington as he often walked the 10 miles home after a night out in the town.

Members of the public have been urged to check outbuildings and land but no trace of the senior aircraftman has been found.

Despite claiming that the landfill site in Cambridgeshire was always an open line of enquiry, Corrie’s mother Mrs Urquhart has revealed police released the site four months ago.

However, even though the landfill owners had been given legal permission to start piling rubbish back on top of the area where Corrie’s body may have been dumped, they had not done so.

On hearing the news about the error in the bin weight, Mrs Urquhart said: “This can only mean one thing.”

The landfill search is set to cost £500,000.
