Detectives searching for missing oil executive Carole Waugh from Durham have found the body of a woman in a lock-up garage in London.

The 50 year old hasn't been seen by her family since mid-April and concerns for her safety grew after a fraudster tried to sell her central London flat by posing as her brother.

Scotland Yard said a woman's body was found in a garage in Lime Court, New Malden, south west London, last night (Thursday 2nd August).

Earlier this week a 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of kidnap and conspiracy to defraud and subsequently on suspicion of murder.
