Police continue to search for missing Corrie McKeague

Published

on

Police are today continuing the search on the landfill at Milton in Cambridgeshire will continue as Suffolk Police continue to investigate the disappearance of Corrie McKeague.

Over 3,500 tonnes of waste have been searched through over the past ten and a half weeks as specialist search trained officers from both Suffolk and Norfolk police continue to look for anything that may assist the investigation.

No trace of Corrie has been found to date, however, throughout the search, officers have been finding items that are from the correct dates, around the time that Corrie went missing, and that are clearly from Bury St Edmunds.

The search has been expanded after waste linked to both the right dates and the right location were found outside the initial cell area identified.

As this type of search is so unusual, it was not known how the waste would have moved and as the work has progressed officers have gained a greater understanding of both how the waste is deposited and spread out, and the nature and construction of the site. Officers continue to take all of this into account as the search continues.

The work is under constant review and now, in week 11, in view of the dates on items still being found and advice from officers on the ground and the site team, it is likely the search will continue for at least three further weeks to ensure that the area holding waste from the relevant period is comprehensively examine.

Corrie’s mum Nicola Urquhart added “I have personally on 5 separate occasions now checked the rubbish from Greg’s when it’s been in the bin. All in bags. Not once have I not found numerous till receipts and items showing it’s from that particular store.

“However, apparently, the single bag of unopened rubbish that has so far been found in the landfill did not contain a single bit of information to show which store or on which date it came from. So for clarity. To date the police have not been able to tell me they have found a single piece of rubbish from the collections made by the biffa bin on that night. This is why they are still looking. And as they have been told this is where the rubbish went it’s why I am saying, if Corrie is not found in that landfill then it appears to me that someone is not telling the police the truth be that accidental or deliberate

Scott Findlay subjected young mother to harrowing sex attack & punched her while she cradled 6-week-old baby

Published

on

A MAN who raped a young mother and repeatedly punched her as she cradled a six-week-old baby in her arms has been jailed.

Scott Findlay subjected his victim to a “prolonged and harrowing” attack in front of her two young children.

Today, at York Crown Court, Judge Simon Hickey sent the 27-year-old, from Ferryhill, in County Durham, to prison for 15 years for offences including rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and threats to kill.

The court heard that the victim pleaded with Findlay, who was armed with a kitchen knife, for her children to be prevented from seeing the attack.

Speaking after sentencing, Detective Constable Katrina Meisuria, of Durham Constabulary’s Safeguarding Unit, praised the victim for her courage in giving evidence.

She said: “Scott Findlay subjected his victim to a prolonged, harrowing and violent attack in front of her two young children.

“It took great bravery by the victim to provide evidence at court reliving those events again.

“There is no doubt these crimes have had a life-changing effect on the victim and her children, but the conviction will provide the family with the opportunity to move forward”.

In a statement released through the police, the victim said: “This has been an extremely difficult time for me and my family.

“The incidents occurred only six weeks after the birth of my daughter who was in my arms as Scott Finlay repeatedly punched me about the head and my seven-year-old looked on in terror begging for him to stop hurting his mammy.

“No child should ever have to witness such an attack”.

She added: “My family and I are pleased with the outcome and relieved it is finally over and we can move forward to rebuilding our life”.

After a four-day trial at Durham Crown Court in May, a jury found Findlay guilty of three counts of rape, one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and one count of making threats to kill.

He had earlier pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and criminal damage.
