CPS sent evidence on four suspects in Claudia Lawrence case

A file of evidence is to be submitted by North Yorkshire Police to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in relation to four men arrested on suspicion of the murder of missing chef Claudia Lawrence.

The four men, who are from the York area and are in their 50s, were arrested earlier this year, one on the 23rd of March and the other three on the 22nd of April.

While the CPS considers the case, the four have been released from bail.

The process of preparing the file will take some time, as will the assessment by the CPS of the case.
