When she saw him at the festival there was an argument between them, which resulted in her assaulting Morgan.

Our officers have been at the location throughout the night supported by the Thames Valley Police Underwater Search Team and Norfolk Police Dive Team and the search is continuing.

A 17-year-old boy is feared drowned in a Bedfordshire lake.
This was an accident waiting to happen. Once the Fullers Earth had been extracted, we wanted to take over the land ourselves and turn it into a leisure park for the village, which would have had proper security and supervision.
That hasn't happened and children have been climbing over the fence getting into the water. It's been going on for ages. The problem is that it used to be a quarry and the water is very, very deep.
This has happened at the start of the summer holidays and kids have been going down there since the hot weather began."
