A man in his 40s from the Watton area who was arrested yesterday had been released on police bail earlier today, also until the beginning of June.

Johanna, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, was found half-naked in a water-filled pit near the edge of Wayland Wood near Watton on Boxing Day 1992.

In December her parents issued a heartfelt plea to help detectives in their search for new leads.

Johanna left her home in Merton Road in the town on December 23 at 7.30pm but did not return home that night.
