A man accused of strangling a 17-year-old girl and dumping her body in woodland before fleeing to Scotland has admitted murder.

Jamie Reynolds, who previously denied the charge, pleaded guilty to the murder of Georgia Williams, during a hearing at Stafford Crown Court.

The 23-year-old was at the centre of a UK-wide manhunt in May after killing Georgia in their home town of Wellington, Shropshire, and dumping her body in woodland near Wrexham.
