Police have arrested a third man on suspicion of the murder of missing Nottingham teenager James Brodie.

The 34-year-old man was arrested by officers in Nottingham on Thursday morning.

James Brodie, who was 19, has not been seen since jeweller Marian Bates was shot dead during a robbery at the Time Centre in Arnold, Nottinghamshire in 2003.

He has not been in touch with family or friends in more than nine years.

Last week searches at Maize Farm, in East Heckington, Lincolnshire, resulted in a number of samples being sent off for further scientific tests.

Dean Betton, aged 32, of Raleigh Street, Radford, has been charged with James Brodie's murder. He will next appear at Lincoln Crown Court in April.

A 31-year-old man, who was also arrested on suspicion of Brodie's murder, was released on bail, pending further inquiries.
