Suspected human remains have been found by police searching for murdered student midwife Joy Morgan.

Police were called after remains were found in woodland near Stevenage yesterday morning.

Police said they were investigating “as a line of inquiry” whether the remains are those of Joy, 20 whose body was never found.

Hertfordshire Police said the force was called to reports of "a suspected human body found in woodland" at Chadwell Road, Norton Green.

The force said in a statement: "|Police were called by a member of the public at 7.43am on Saturday October 5 to reports of a suspected human body found in woodland off Chadwell Road, Stevenage.

"Officers are in attendance at the scene. No identification has been made at this time."

Ms Morgan was last seen on Boxing Day at a church event in Ilford.

Shohfah-El Israel, 40, of north-west London, was found guilty of her murder at Reading Crown Court in August.
