He said: “I have been very encouraged by the number of calls we have had from people in the Southend area and the information they have given us has opened up a number of lines of enquiry.
“We have made an arrest today in part as a result of information from the public. However I would still encourage people who know anything about Angela to continue to contact the incident room by calling Essex Police on 101 and then extension 470173.”
