A woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of teenager Jayden Parkinson.

The 17-year-old's body was found in an established grave in the Great Western Cemetery next to All Saints Church in Didcot on 18 December.

The woman, 48, from Didcot was arrested at 08:20 GMT on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. She was later released on police bail until 14 March.

Jayden's ex-boyfriend Ben Blakeley, 22, has been charged with her murder.

Mr Blakeley, of Christchurch Road, Reading, and a 17-year-old boy from Didcot, have also been charged with perverting the course of justice.

The teenager is also accused of assisting in the disposal of Jayden's body and other evidence.

Jayden disappeared on 3 December having last been seen leaving Didcot railway station at about 16:30 GMT.

Her funeral was held earlier this month near her former hometown of Folkestone in Kent.
