A 45-year-old man arrested on suspicion of the murder of Bath graduate Melanie Hall has been released on bail.

The man, from Wiltshire, was arrested on Thursday morning and was released overnight by Avon and Somerset Police.

Miss Hall, 25, was last seen alive at the former Cadillacs nightclub in Bath city centre on 9 June 1996.

Her partial remains were found 13 years later in a plastic bag close to the Falfield junction of the M5 near Thornbury in 2009.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said Melanie's parents were being supported by specialist family liaison officers.
