Detective Chief Superintendent Andy Cox, Head of Crime at Lincolnshire Police, said: "Our thoughts continue to be with the families of Bethany and Darren as they grieve these unimaginable losses.

"Throughout the investigation, we have received brilliant support. The people of Louth have shown how strong their community is, and I’d like to pay tribute to the help we’ve had from them."

He added: "It’s really important now that members of the public refrain from posting speculation on social media as this is an ongoing criminal process.

"We’d also ask people to respect the families privacy at this exceptionally difficult time."
