Police in W Yorks bail Newbury man

West Yorkshire Police last night bailed a 79-year-old man arrested on suspicion of the murder of 14-year-old schoolgirl Elsie Frost.

The man, who was re-arrested on Monday 6 March, in Newbury, has been bailed back into secure custody.

Detectives will now submit a file of evidence to the CPS for them to consider on the offences of kidnap, rape and murder.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: "Following extensive interviews, we have now bailed a man we arrested earlier this week in connection with the murder of Elsie Frost.

"We have been in dialogue with a dedicated case lawyer from the CPS` Complex Case Unit and we will now be submitting a file of evidence for them to consider charges in respect of kidnap, rape and murder."
