The father of missing airman Corrie McKeague says he does not believe his son's remains will be found in an incinerator in Suffolk.

Police revealed yesterday they are examining waste - including bone fragments - found at the plant in Great Blakenham.

But Martin McKeague has told ITV News Anglia he thinks the best hope of finding Corrie is to keep searching a landfill site at Milton in Cambridgeshire and that he doesn't believe the fragments are anything to do with Corrie.

They have found some bones which were expected and which could be animal bones, we're just going to have to wait and see until they're tested. Deep down I don't think it's Corrie.

Specialist officers sifted through 650 tonnes of ash at the Great Blakenham plant over the weekend. Last night police issued a statement saying they had: "Recovered some material that requires further examination in order to establish whether it is in any way connected to Corrie McKeague… It will be subject to specialist examination and forensic analysis."

Corrie went missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September last year. Police believe he fell asleep in a bin and was carried away in a bin lorry.

This led them to the landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire which officers spent 20 weeks searching. Costs reached 1.2million pounds. The search was stopped two weeks ago.
