Missing Bristol teen 'may be travelling with another girl'

A missing 15-year-old girl from Bristol believed to be heading to join extremists in Syria is thought to have met up with a 17-year-old girl from London and headed to Turkey, where they are trying to cross the border into the neighbouring war-torn state.

It is unclear how the teenagers met, but they both vanished from their homes last week amid fears they have been radicalised.

The London teenager, from Lambeth, is also of Somali descent and was last seen at around 7am on September 24 when she left her home.

Officers are investigating whether the two girls travelled together from Heathrow Airport to Istanbul, Turkey, on their way to Syria.

IPCC investigating police delay over suspect teacher

An investigation is under way tonight over why it took police nine months to question a deputy headteacher who secretly filmed pupils in school changing rooms.

Last November, police here were told by officers in Toronto Police that Martin Goldberg had bought indecent videos of children online.

It wasn't until earlier this month that officers spoke to Mr Goldberg about the allegations, and the following day he was found dead.

ITV News' Sejal Karia reports from Southend:

Teacher's covert filming 'could not easily have been prevented'

The executive councillor for children and learning at Southend Council has said that nothing could have been done to protect children at a leisure centre frequented by Martin Goldberg.

This is one of four locations where the former deputy headteacher is believed to have covertly taken photos of children using a camera hidden in a bag.

Councillor Anne Jones told ITV News that no safeguarding procedures had been broken at the leisure centre:
