Police who found a boy's body in a van dragged from the River Derwent have arrested a second man.

A blue Ford Escort van was stolen in Alvaston, Derbyshire early on Sunday morning and found in the river near Raynesway on Monday afternoon.

The body of Patrick Piggott, 14, of Alvaston, was found in the van.

A 25-year-old has now been arrested on suspicion of theft of a vehicle. A 19-year-old man has been charged with the same offence.

The arrested man was being questioned by police on Wednesday.

An inquest into Patrick's death has been opened and adjourned at Derby Coroner's Court.

The 19-year-old will appear at Derby Magistrates' Court "in due course", Derbyshire police said.

Patrick was reported missing on Sunday.
