Two held in 1997 murder inquiry

Two men have been arrested by police investigating the disappearance of a woman 17 years ago.

Deborah Steel, former landlady of the Royal Standard Public House in Ely, Cambridgeshire, went missing on December 28 1997.

Her body has never been found.

Earlier this year the inquiry into her disappearance was reclassified as a murder investigation and officers excavated the garden of a property in Ely in a search for clues.

Cambridgeshire Police said the men , aged 72 and 49, are from Ely and Sutton.

A 70-year-old man, from Ely, who was arrested in September is still on police bail.

A police spokesman said the men have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
