Suffolk police say that incinerated waste found at a facility in Great Blakenham needs further examination to see if its in any way connected to the disappearance of RAF Serviceman Corrie McKeague.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: "Police searching incinerated waste at the Great Blakenham energy-from-waste facility have recovered some material that requires further examination in order to establish whether it is in any way connected to the Corrie McKeague missing person enquiry. At this stage it cannot be confirmed whether or not this material is in any way linked to Corrie and so it will be subject to specialist examination and forensic analysis in the coming weeks. Police expected that it would be necessary to take items recovered from the search away from the site in order to examine them more carefully. Corrie's family have been kept updated about the search. The search of the incinerated waste is now complete."

The 23 year disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September last year.
