Police are appealing for help to trace a missing 15-year-old girl from Norfolk.

Tayler McGovern originally went missing from Norfolk on Wednesday, but is now believed to be in the Ipswich area.

Tayler is described as white, around 5ft 6ins tall, of medium build with brown eyes and long dark hair that she often wears in a plait.

At the time she was last seen she was wearing a thigh length fluffy white coat, black leggings or jeans and black trainers and was carrying a black handbag with fake gems on it.

Anyone who may have seen her in Ipswich, or anyone who may have any information about where she is now is asked to contact Suffolk Police.


Homeless people being sent from Norwich to Cambridge

Traders in Cambridge are expressing concerns at the number of homeless people in the city.

They say that a controversial council plan has seen numbers rise, after councils like Norwich have been sending homeless people to Cambridge because there are more opportunities there.

The claim comes after the number of rough sleepers in the city increased, from 135 to 152 in the last year.

Norwich City Council say that no individuals have been part of their "reconnection" scheme in the last 12 months.

Our records show that this council has not reconnected any rough sleeper to Cambridge in the last 12 months'

However, most local authorities, including Norwich, have signed up to a 'reconnection' approach which allows them to focus their limited resources on clients who have a local connection to their area.

We recognise that this is not always a straightforward issue but it's important to note that the process of 'reconnection' is widely accepted as a useful tool in reducing the numbers of people rough sleeping on the street.

Police have 'no expectation of finding missing Sylvia Stuart alive'

Police investigating the disappearance of Sylvia Stuart say they have no expectation of finding Sylvia alive.

Ali Qazimaj from Essex who was wanted in connection with the investigation, has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of both Peter and Sylvia Stuart from Suffolk.

The force confirmed yesterday that the search for Mrs Stuart, who disappeared after her husband was stabbed to death on 3 June, had become a murder inquiry.

A staff member identified Mr Qazimaj in Luxembourg, who police had been searching for since 6 June, after seeing pictures of him on the internet.

It's now nearly three weeks since Sylvia was last seen on CCTV. I don't have any expectation of finding Sylvia alive.

We've conducted a huge amount of searching around the Weybread area and now we're looking down the A12 and looking along the routes from the Weybread area down towards Tilbury.

Three Bedfordshire police officers have been served with gross misconduct notices and are under criminal investigation in relation to the circumstances surrounding the death of a Bedford man.

Karl Brunner died on 11 May in Bedford town centre.

IPCC investigators are examining their use of force during Mr Brunner’s restraint and the provision of emergency medical care.

A post mortem did not identify his cause of death and tests are ongoing.

Following careful consideration of the evidence we have gathered so far, we have now launched a criminal investigation into the circumstances surrounding Mr Brunner’s death.

“The launch of a criminal investigation does not mean that charges will necessarily follow.

I would urge people not to speculate about the circumstances of Mr Brunner’s death and await the outcome of our investigation.

“As this is now a criminal investigation, the IPCC is limited in the amount of information which can be released into the public domain.

We continue to keep Mr Brunner’s family updated with our progress and our thoughts remain with all of those affected by his death.
