An inquest into the death of a teenager whose body was found on the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk will be held next month.

The body of Latvian-born Alisa Dmitrijeva was found on New Year's Day in 2012.

The 17-year-old had been missing from her home in Wisbech for five months.

No one has ever been charged over her death.

Norfolk Police said, despite passing their file to the coroner, the investigation would remain open.

Reaction to Wills joining air ambulance

There's been a positive reaction to the news that the Duke of Cambridge is to train as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

When five year old Ruby Salter, from Eye in Suffolk, fell into a glass door she severed an artery in her arm and lost a large amount of blood. Her mother, Sally, says the crew of the air ambulance that transported her to hospital for emergency surgery did an amazing job.

William will need to do five months of training before joining the air ambulance crew. His main duties will involve flying an EC145 T2 aircraft and working alongside medics to respond to emergencies ranging from road accidents to heart attacks.

He's used to this sort of work though. He's a qualified Sea King helicopter pilot who ended his service in RAF Search and Rescue last September and was involed in 150 rescue operations. But there are some differences in the way the services work according to MAGPAS helimedix pilot, Craig Redman.

If the Duke of Cambridge completes all his training he should be ready to fly in the Spring.
