US missing student: 'Great deal of work ahead'

Virginia police say they have found a body which could be that of British-born student Hannah Graham, 18, who vanished in Charlottesville last month.

It was discovered in an abandoned property in Albemarle County, where the remains of another missing Virginia Tech student were found in 2010.

Jesse Matthew, 32, was charged last month with abducting Ms Graham for the purpose of sexual assault.

Col Steve Sellers, from Albemarle County Police, said that officers had begun a "death investigation" and that there was "a great deal of work ahead".
