Police find belongings of murdered Sian O'Callaghan

Boots belonging to murdered 22-year-old Sian O'Callaghan have been discovered by police.

A brown 'New Look' left boot was found on Wednesday floating in a pond two miles from the village of Ramsbury, near Marlborough, Wiltshire.

Sian O'Callaghan was abducted and brutally murdered in March 2011.

Today a second boot was recovered from the pond by police divers and is thought to be Miss O'Callaghan's right boot, which she was wearing when she vanished.

Christopher Halliwell, a 50-year-old taxi driver, is serving a life sentence after admitting Sian's murder. Miss O'Callaghan was abducted and brutally murdered in March 2011 after leaving a nightclub in the Old Town area of Swindon.

Extensive searches are now being carried out in the area where the boots were found, including the use of a specialist dive team from Avon and Somerset and cadaver dogs from South Wales. Police have described the discovery as an "important" find.
