Police appeal to find killer of Hebden Bridge teen

Detectives have launched a re-appeal to catch the killer of Hebden Bridge teenager Lindsay Rimer who disappeared twenty years ago this week.

The body of the 13-year-old schoolgirl was not found for five months and her murder remains unsolved.

On November 7, 1994, Lindsay left her home on Cambridge Street, Hebden Bridge to go to the shops.

She paused briefly at the Trades Club on Holme Street where she met her mum before buying the cornflakes.

CCTV from the shop on Crown Street shows her buying the cornflakes at 10.22pm. It is not known what happened to her then.

Her body was recovered from the Rochdale Canal on the outskirts of hebden Bridge five months later.

Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson of West Yorkshire Police's Protective Services (crime) department, is leading the fresh appeal.
