A second man has been in arrested in connection with the death of Watton teenager Johanna Young in 1992.

The second man arrested in connection with the death of Johanna Young in 1992 has this evening been released on police bail.

Norfolk police said the man, aged in his 30s and from the Thetford area, was bailed pending further enquiries until early June.

A man in his 40s from the Watton area who was arrested yesterday had been released on police bail earlier today, also until the beginning of June.

Johanna, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, was found half-naked in a water-filled pit near the edge of Wayland Wood near Watton on Boxing Day 1992.

In December her parents issued a heartfelt plea to help detectives in their search for new leads.

Johanna left her home in Merton Road in the town on December 23 at 7.30pm but did not return home that night.

Her parents had assumed she was with friends or her boyfriend, but later became worried when she failed to turn up for her paper round on Christmas Eve.

Two people, reportedly including a 14-year-old boy were taken to hospital in separate stabbing incidents last night.

A young woman was left unconscious and needing hospital treatment after being subjected to a “despicable” sexual assault, police have said.

My husband is never referred to as a “working father”, writes Ellen Widdup.

There is nothing work than getting stuck in traffic jams caused by roadworks.

The southbound carriageway of the A11 near Barton Mills is currently closed after a three-vehicle crash.

The last day of February this year will see people across the country indulging in a pancake or two.

My half term week could best be described as a tale of two cinemas, writes Sheena Grant.
