Candles and flowers for 12-year-old Tia Sharp have been left outside the house in Croydon where a body has been found.

A poem was left with a photo of Tia which described her as "heaven's little angel".

Detectives have defended their handling of the case after a body was found at her grandmother's house, after several searches.

Tia's aunt, Maxine Carter, said the last week had been 'the worst nightmare ever'.
