Dozens of candles have been lit at the bus stop in New Addington which could have been used by schoolgirl Tia Sharp the day she went missing.

Among the tealights are handwritten notes asking for Tia to be brought home.

Tia vanished on Friday lunchtime, after telling relatives she was going to the Whitgift Centre in Croydon town centre.

Hundreds of missing posters have been distributed around New Addington area and Tia's face looks out from most local shops and noticeboards.
