One Direction fans might have to wait a little longer for Zayn Malik to launch his solo career after a spokesman for his producer Naughty Boy said the track that appeared online was actually recorded for the boyband's last album.
The song, called I Won't Mind, which features the star singing over an acoustic guitar, was put up online by Naughty Boy and led to claims Malik was about to release it as a solo single.
But a spokesman for the producer, who has also worked with acts including Emile Sande, said: "Naughty Boy and Zayn wrote and demoed the song as a contender for One Direction's album last year.
"They aren't furiously writing on his solo material or anything, there aren't plans in place for a big solo launch and this wasn't recorded in the last few days they were together.
"They are very good friends and Zayn is taking time out, including visiting Naughty Boy at his studio and hanging out together."
Glynis Kennedy from Bradford, who was the subject of a missing persons appeal earlier this evening has now been found safe and well.
A major search is taking place right now for a 71-year-old woman who has been missing from home in Bradford for six hours.
Police say they're very concerned for the safety of Glynis Kennedy who's vanished while out walking her golden retriever dog. Her disappearance is completely out of character.
She set off from her home in Deanwood Avenue in Allerton at half past four this afternoon and her normal route is around Chellow Dean Woods, quarry and reservoirs.
She was wearing a light blue fleece jacket, black Reebok tracksuit bottoms and grey and blue walking shoes. Mrs Kennedy was only supposed to be out for a short time. Detectives are asking for anyone who's seen Mrs Kennedy, or her dog which hasn't been found to contact them.
A man who fled to the other side of the world to escape justice is now in custody in West Yorkshire.
Steven Allison, 37, from Bradford failed to turn up at court in February last year when he was due to be sentenced for two sexual assaults.
Allison, formerly of New Street in Idle, was sentenced to 30 months in his absence.
The offences occurred against two women at licensed premises in Yeadon, Leeds in June 2013.
Enquiries made by Bradford District's Public Protection Unit and Interpol traced him to Australia, where he had been working on construction sites.
He was located in January this year and subsequently held in a detention centre. He was brought back to England today and is expected to attend court before being transferred to prison.
