A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Rachel McGrath, the judge's daughter whose throat was cut as she waited outside a public house on Friday night, police said yesterday.

The man was also being questioned over the abduction of a 17-year-old girl, said a Greater Manchester police spokesman.

Ms McGrath, 27, was stabbed to death as she arrived to collect her boyfriend from the pub in Bramhall, Stockport. Her father Brian McGrath, 55, is a district judge in the family division.

A man was arrested early yesterday in Caernarfon, North Wales, in connection with the kidnapping of the 17-year-old girl in Stockport. It is understood she was abducted as she was driving to work on Saturday morning. She later escaped from her kidnapper's car.
