Detectives searching for missing Westminster officer Gordon Semple, have this afternoon, Thursday, 7 April, begun a forensic search of a property in Southwark.

A 49-year-old man was arrested at the address on suspicion of murder and is in police custody.

This is obviously a significant development, and we have informed Gordon’s family.

We are unable to make formal identification at this stage, but this is devastating news for all those involved in the search for Gordon.

His family are being supported by specially trained officers and his colleagues have been briefed.

Police were called at 13:07hrs, today, Thursday, 7 April, to an address on the Peabody Estate, Southwark Street, SE1.

Officers attended the address where human remains were discovered

Our work at that scene is crucial to ensure we capture all available evidence and this may take some time.

At this stage we will not speculate any further on what may have happened or possible motive.

A post-mortem will be held in due course, and until that has taken place we will not speculate on the cause of death.
