A dress that appears to be the custom-made Oscars gown taken from Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong'o's hotel room has been recovered, the Los Angeles sheriff's department has said.

A spokesperson for the sheriff's said the dress "greatly resembles" the $150,000 (£97,000) pearl-encrusted Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa dress Nyong'o wore to the Academy Awards.

Detectives are attempting to verify that it is the dress the Twelve Years A Slave star Nyong'o wore when she was presenting an Oscar last Sunday.

The DJ, who is married to Ronnie Wood's son Jesse, said leaving the station was the start of a "new chapter".

Writing on her website, she said she had had "the most incredible decade" working on the station.

I feel extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother, and we get to welcome another Wood into the world.

I would like to thank Radio 1 for being such a great home and most of all to the listeners who have been on this journey with me.

It's such a kick to know you heard a band on my show first, or that the songs I've played have helped you through the day, so thank you."

US President Barack Obama says 'I loved Spock'

US President Barack Obama has issued a statement after the death of veteran actor Leonard Nimoy.

Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the centre of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future.

I loved Spock.

In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for “Live long and prosper.” And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it’s clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today.

– US President Barack Obama
