A 36-year-old man arrested in connection with the murder of the schoolgirl Billie-Jo Jenkins was released on police bail yesterday.

The man, who was arrested at his home in Hastings in the early hours of Thursday morning and who spent the day being questioned by detectives, has been bailed to return to the town's police station next month. Billie-Jo, 13 (pictured), was bludgeoned to death with a metal tent spike as she painted the patio doors of her family home in Hastings, last Saturday.
