A man arrested in connection with the murder of a woman from Bath whose body was found 13 years after she disappeared has been rebailed.

The 44-year-old man was arrested last year, four years after Melanie Hall's remains were found near a motorway. 

Miss Hall, who worked at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, vanished after a night out at Cadillacs nightclub in Walcot Street in the city in June 1996. 

On October 5 2009, human remains were found by the side of the M5 by a workman who was clearing vegetation on the slip road at junction 14, near Thornbury, south Gloucestershire. 

Two days later, the remains were identified as those of Miss Hall, from Wiltshire. 

Last November, the man from Bath was arrested on suspicion of the murder of the 25-year-old. 

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said: 

'A 44-year-old man arrested on suspicion of the murder of Melanie Hall has been further bailed pending further inquiries.'
