Police hold 28-year-old over killing of Amy

Detectives hunting the killer of the pregnant schoolgirl Amy Williams have arrested a 28-year-old man and released CCTV footage of her filmed on Boxing Day.

Amy, 14, was found dead in the grounds of St Michael's Church in Madeley, Telford, over a week ago. A 27-year-old man was arrested last Thursday and released on Monday.

The CCTV tape shows Amy going from the town centre towards a community centre. She was alone, apparently fit and well and did not appear to be in any distress.

Her body was found by a man visiting a grave. She was naked except for pink socks - detectives are still trying to trace the missing clothes, a pink tracksuit and white Kappa trainers.

Police are keen to discover what happened after Amy left a party in Sutton Hill, Telford, at 9pm on Boxing Day.

"This CCTV is very helpful to us as it gives us vital information about Amy's movements on Boxing Day evening," said Detective Chief Inspector Dave Morgan, of West Mercia Police. "However, we remain extremely keen to get more information and we would repeat our appeals for people who may be able to help us to come forward."
