Elsie Frost's family reacts to arrest

A man in his 70s has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a schoolgirl more than 50 years ago.

The police investigation into the death of Elsie Frost, 14, in West Yorkshire in 1965 was re-opened last year after a series of reports on BBC Radio 4's PM programme.

Police say a 78-year-old man was held in Berkshire. The BBC understands his name is Peter Pickering.

Elsie's brother Colin told the BBC that he is pleased that the family "have been taken seriously".
