The father of Genette Tate, who went missing 33 years ago, has asked to meet convicted child killer Robert Black, who is a suspect in the case.

Thirteen-year-old Genette went missing while doing her paper round in a Devon village on 19 August, 1978.

Detective Sergeant Jane Williams of Devon and Cornwall Police said inquiries would be made into a possible connection with the murder of Jennifer Cardy in August 1981.
