Father-of-three Halliwell, 48, of Ashbury Avenue, Swindon, pleaded guilty to the charge during a hearing at Bristol Crown Court.

Shortly after she walked past the Goddard Arms on the High Street in the Old Town area, she fell into Halliwell's clutches by getting into his taxi.
What is moral is not always legal. That's the hard and uncomfortable lesson of the investigation into the disappearance of Sian O'Callaghan.
