A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the murder of Joanna Yeates early today.

The 25-year-old’s body was found on Longwood Lane, Failand, North Somerset, on Christmas Day morning, sparking a huge police operation.

A police investigation was launched when Miss Yeates’s boyfriend Greg Reardon, 27, reported her missing after he returned to Bristol on December 19 following a weekend away visiting family in Sheffield.

Miss Yeates was not seen again until her body was found on December 25.

Today’s news came a day after police revealed that more than 300 people had contacted detectives investigating the murder in the 24 hours after a reconstruction of Miss Yeates’s final movements was filmed.
