Members of the public have also been urged to go to North Yorkshire Police’s new microsite dedicated to the Claudia Lawrence investigation which went live at 9.30pm on Wednesday.

The Claudia microsite has been viewed 6,602 times so far and this is expected to increase over the coming days and weeks.
