The parents of murdered schoolgirl Alice Gross have spoken of their bewilderment and anger after a coroner left a file on the investigation into their daughter's death on a train.

Chinyere Inyama, the senior west London coroner, lost the 30-page police file last November, a month after Alice's body was found in a river in the capital.

Police tried to recover the file, which contained evidence against prime suspect Arnis Zalkalns, but concluded it had probably been "destroyed as waste".

Alice's mother and father, Ros Hodgkiss and Jose Gross, are furious at the loss. They said: "We are extremely concerned, bewildered and angry - and we have asked for a full written explanation."
