British police have re-arrested two people on suspicion of murder in the search for missing teenager Becky Watts.

The pair, a man (28) and woman (21), were previously arrested on Saturday on suspicion of kidnap.

They were further arrested by Avon and Somerset police this afternoon on suspicion of murder.

Becky (16) was last seen at her home in Bristol on 19 February. She was reported missing the next day, and there have been extensive searches carried out of the surrounding area by volunteers and police.

Extra units, including specialist dog units and a helicopter, were drafted in from other police forces in the area.

Sky News quotes Becky’s father and step-mother as saying they ‘preparing for the worst’.
