A serving Metropolitan Police officer has been arrested on suspicion of murder, following the disappearance of a woman in south London last week.

Sarah Everard, who was 33, was last seen a week ago on her way home from a friend’s house.

The Metropolitan Police commissioner Dame Cressida Dick revealed tonight that “what appear to be human remains” have been found near Ashford in Kent but those remains have not yet been identified.

Dame Cressida said the news that the suspect was one of her officers had sent shockwaves and anger throughout the force. She also said it was “incredibly rare” for a woman to be abducted from the capital’s streets and her thoughts were with Sarah Everard’s family.
