Bristol City beat Leyton Orient last night to go ten points clear at the top of League 1.

Despite Orient scoring within 5 minutes, City quickly equalised with a Luke Freeman close range finish.

Anden Flint scored a powerful header to put Bristol City firmly in control and in the second half Aaron Wilbraham scored his 16th goal of the season to put the game our of sight.

Close rivals MK Dons were beaten at home by Chesterfield which means City now have a 10 point lead at the top of the table.

It's been reported that the two people under arrest are Becky's step-brother, Nathan Matthews, and his girlfriend, Shauna Phillips.

Other media outlets have begun naming the pair over the last 24 hours and it indicates that Becky may have known her killer.

Police in Bristol have until this afternoon to charge or release Matthews and Phillips, who are being held on suspicion of murdering the teenager.

Yesterday detectives announced that body parts had been found during the search for the 16 year-old, who went missing from her home in St George nearly two weeks ago.

In total, seven people in their 20s are in police custody.

Radio DJs' Kate hoax was illegal, Australian court rules

Two radio DJs broke the law when they prank-called a hospital caring for the Duchess of Cambridge, Australia's high court has ruled.

Mel Greig and Michael Christian were put through to a nurse at King Edward VII, who gave information about the Duchess' condition after being told the call was from the Queen and Prince Charles.

Indian-born Jacintha Saldana, 46, committed suicide three days later.

The decision in favour of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) came after a challenge by radio station 2Day FM, which argued that the watchdog did not have the authority to rule that the actions were illegal.

Following the high court ruling, the station could be fined or lose its licence.

Greig and Christian have since apologised for the prank, with Greig attending Saldana's inquest in London.
