A 45-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Melanie Hall.

The man was arrested on Thursday and remains in custody for questioning.

The 25-year-old university graduate was last seen at the former Cadillacs nightclub in Walcot Street, Bath in the early hours of June 9, 1996.

Her remains were found in vegetation off the northbound slipway at junction 14 of the M5 at Thornbury in 2009.

Detective Superintendent Andy Bevan said: "Melanie's parents have been informed of the arrest and will continue to be supported and updated on the progress of our inquiry by specialist family liaison officers."
