A woman in her 30s, who was arrested in connection with the disappearance and death of Sarah Everard, has had her bail extended by the Met Police.

Ms Everard's body was found in woodland in Kent more than a week after she was last seen on 3 March.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and has now been bailed until early June

She was arrested at the same time as PC Wayne Couzens, who has been charged with murder.

Ms Everard, 33, visited a friend in the Clapham Junction area on 3 March and left at about 21:00 GMT to make what was roughly a 2.5-mile (4km) journey home.

She never arrived and was reported missing by her boyfriend the next day.

Her body was found a week later inside a builder's bag in an area of woodland in Ashford, Kent, and was identified using dental records.
