Our pain is raw, says Sian O'Callaghan's father
The father of the murdered secretary Sian O'Callaghan has spoken of his family's "raw and overwhelming" pain over her death.
Speaking for the first time since she was found last week, Mick O'Callaghan, 51, paid an emotional tribute to his "bubbly, friendly, caring and loving" daughter.
"Although our pain... is real and overpowering, our memories of Sian will be a comfort to us in the dark days ahead," he said.
Earlier, a police convoy was attacked outside Swindon magistrates' court after Christopher Halliwell, 47, appeared in the dock charged with killing Ms O'Callaghan, 22, who was found near the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire, 15 miles from her home in Swindon. Abuse was shouted from the public gallery.
He was remanded in custody to appear before Bristol Crown Court on 30 March.
In a separate development police removed human remains at Eastleach, Gloucestershire. Detectives said they were believed to belong to a woman aged 23 to 30 who "was taken from the Swindon area" between 2003 and 2005, but did not identify her.
