The girlfriend of missing Corrie McKeague has announced their baby daughter has been named Ellie-Louise.

April Oliver, a personal trainer, met Corrie five months before he went missing.

She announced her pregnancy in January, and Ellie-Louise was born on June 11.

The update came as police continue their search for 23-year-old Corrie's body at a rubbish tip.

The RAF gunner disappeared following a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in September last year.

At the weekend Corrie's mum Nicola Urquhart shared a previously unseen photo of her son on the day he joined the RAF to mark nine months since his disappearance.

Police have now spent four months raking through more than 4,800 tonnes of rubbish at a landfill site in Milton, Cambridge, as part of a £1 million investigation.

They are basing the theory his remains are there on CCTV footage which last saw him entering a refuge area behind a Greggs in the market town.

Corrie's mobile phone was tracked following a similar route to that of a bin lorry, which was found to have carried weight similar to a human body.

No trace of Corrie has been found to date, but officers have been finding items that were disposed of in Bury St Edmunds around the time he went missing.
