Police are searching another field in Wiltshire for items belonging to murdered Swindon woman Sian O'Callaghan.

Wiltshire Police said the search followed information the 22-year-old's property may be in the area.

A spokesman said the field, between Bourton and Bishopstone, is in the same area it searched earlier this month.

Miss O'Callaghan was killed by taxi driver Christopher Halliwell, who is serving 25 years for her murder.

Earlier in December detectives removed an unnamed item from a ditch in a field but were unable to confirm whether it belonged to Miss O'Callaghan.

Previously detectives said they were hoping to find her handbag, keys and mobile phone to return them to her family.

In October 2012, Halliwell was jailed at Bristol Crown Court after admitting the murder of Miss O'Callaghan whose body was found near the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire.
