Four bodies have been found by police searching for a missing mother and her four children.

Detectives confirmed the finds in the hunt for Lesley Ford, 36, and four of her six children, who vanished more than a month ago.

Three bodies were found in woodshed at the family home in Carnkie, Cornwall.

The fourth was discovered in a field near Penryn.

Mrs Ford's husband, Lee, 33, is being questioned by police. He is being held at Camborne police station, Cornwall.

Officers were alerted to the disappearances just a week ago by Mrs Ford's brother.

Speaking outside the family detached bungalow, Pc Sharon Newman said: "We can confirm three bodies have been found in the wood shed at this location.

"The bodies will be taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Treliske for post-mortem examinations."
