Police search derelict flats in hunt for Paige Chivers

Detectives investigating the murder of a Blackpool school girl are searching a derelict block of flats close to where she went to school.

Paige Chivers went missing seven years ago.

A forensic team is combing the address on All Hallows Road in Bispham, near to the last confirmed sighting of the youngster.

It follows an announcement of a £30,000 reward for information

Det Supt Andy Webster says Lancashire Police are determined to find Paige's killer.

New leads in Paige murder probe

Since last week we have spoken to a significant number of people, some who have previously featured in the inquiry and some who have not.

We have now undertaken a forensic search at an address on All Hallows Road.

It has been nearly seven years since Paige disappeared and in that time forensic techniques have become more and more advanced.

In particular, DNA testing and analysis has become more sensitive and I am hopeful that this will assist in the work that is being undertaken today.

– Detective Superintendent Andy Webster, Lancashire Police
