Triple child-killer Robert Black was yesterday at the centre of police investigations into the case of missing Devon teenager Genette Tate and the murder of nine-year-old Ulster girl Jennifer Cardy. Black, a 48-year-old former van driver who is serving 10 life sentences, was interviewed by officers investigating the unsolved cases.

Officers from three forces interviewed Black after he was taken from Wakefield jail, West Yorkshire, to the town's police station. Genette Tate, 12, vanished while doing a newspaper round on Devon in 1978. Her body has never been found and she is still listed as a missing person. Nine- year-old Jennifer Cardy was found drowned in a mill pond off the Hillsborough to Dromore dual carriageway in Ulster in August, 1981.
