Gordon Semple: Human remains found in Southwark flat

Published

on

Gordon Semple has been described as an old school copper who loved his job. The Police Constable never returned home from work following a meeting inside the Shard.

The Police Constable was well liked having served 30 years as a copper. He vanished without a trace last Friday.

Almost a week later body parts were discovered in a flat behind the Tate Modern. It is believed Police were called to the flat following reports of a strong smell coming from the flat.

Police Constable Gordon Semple aged 59 had been attending a meeting in plain clothes at the five star Shangri-La hotel.

Officers searched a block of flats in Southwark which is just yards from PC Semple’s last known location.

Met Police arrested a 49 year old man on suspicion of murder after human remains were discovered within a flat.

Following the developments in the search for missing police officer PC Gordon Semple, Commander Alison Newcomb made the following statement this morning (8 April):

“A man arrested on suspicion of murder remains in our custody and is being questioned by detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command. They have been leading our search to find missing PC Gordon Semple.

“This is obviously a significant development and we have informed Gordon’s family and his colleagues.

“Gordon was reported missing on 1 April and we have been working hard to find him.

“Yesterday afternoon we were called by a member of the public to an address on the Peabody Estate in Southwark Street, SE1.

“At that address a man was arrested and human remains were discovered. Due to the condition of those human remains it will take some time for cause of death to be established and for formal identification to take place.

“At this point I do not wish to speculate on what has happened.

“Yesterday, a forensic search started at the address and is ongoing. It will take some time for us to complete that work. It is a vital search for evidence. I would like to thank the local residents for their patience and support.

“Local officers are out on patrol to talk to residents and reassure them.

“If there is anyone who can help us with our investigation I would ask you to get in touch with us and tell us what you know.

“My thoughts are with Gordon’s family and friends at this time of personal tragedy. I would ask that they are given the space and privacy they need to come to terms with this development.

“This is a very sad day for Gordon’s colleagues. There are many officers who have served London alongside Gordon during his 30 year career who will acutely feel his loss.”

Published

on

Police Dog Blue and his handler from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit found a vulnerable teenager on Wednesday (October 18).

Officers were called to an address in Friday Bridge, Cambridgeshire at around 10.45pm after concerns were raised about a teenager who had gone missing.

Due to concerns for her welfare, PD Blue and his handler were also called to assist with the search.

German Shepherd Blue was deployed and began searching the local area. Whilst going down a nearby lane, Blue led his handler into an area of woodland and undergrowth.

It was here that the pair found the missing teenager. They were then able to provide immediate care before other officers arrived to take her home.

Inspector Iain Clark, who is the head of the BCH Dog Unit, said: “The officers had numerous places to search and I am glad PD Blue and his handler were able to provide assistance, which saw the teenager safely found within a short period of time.

“I am proud of their work and this is another great example of how the BCH Dog Unit can support other officers around the three counties.”
