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.
Fearne Cotton is quitting Radio 1 after telling her fans she is pregnant with her second child.
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."
Cotton's role presenting the station's Live Lounge will be taken over by Clara Amfo.
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.
Zachary Quinto, who played Mr Spock in the 2009 reboot 'Star Trek' and its 2013 sequel 'Star Trek Into Darkness', has said his "heart is broken" after the news that the original Mr Spock, Leonard Nimoy, died this morning.

Leonard Nimoy dying seems somehow...illogical.
Leonard Nimoy brought us one of the greatest, noblest characters in the history of American storytelling. Someone find the Genesis planet.
Truly sad hearing the passing of Mr Leonard Nimoy. A wonderful humanitarian and poet. The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few.
George Takei, known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the television series Star Trek, said he will miss Leonard Nimoy and the world had "lost a great man"
On his official Facebook page Mr Takei said Nimoy was being "returned to the stars".
He also told MSNBC: "You know, the word ‘extraordinary’ is often overused, but I think it’s really appropriate for Leonard.
"He was an extraordinarily talented man, but also a very decent human being. His talent embraced directing as well as acting, and photography.
"He was a very sensitive man and we feel his passing very much. He’d been ill for a long, long time and we miss him very much.”
William Shatner, who played Star Trek's Captain Kirk, said he loved Leonard Nimoy "like a brother".
He added: "We will all miss his humour, his talent, and his capacity to love."
