The grandmother of missing schoolgirl Tia Sharp has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Christine Sharp, 46, was held after a body was found yesterday at her home in New Addington, near Croydon, south London.
Her partner Stuart Hazell, 37, was arrested last night on suspicion of murder.
Next-door neighbour Paul Meehan, 39, was later arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Tia was reported missing last Friday, and last seen alive at Ms Sharp’s home.
Police reportedly removed an as yet unidentified body late last night after Hazell was taken into custody.
The location of the find has not been revealed. Officers were seen taking a ladder into the property yesterday afternoon, sparking rumours that it may have been in the loft.
