Man held over Hannah murder
Scene where body was found
The body was found at a cement works in Kent
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a schoolgirl whose body was found buried at a cement works.

The body of Hannah Williams was discovered by workmen at the Blue Circle works in Northfleet, Kent, in March this year - nearly a year after she disappeared.

The 14-year-old was last seen at her home in Deptford, south London on 21 April 2001.

A man in his 50s from south London is being questioned by police at a station in Kent.

Fashion fan

A post-mortem examination on Hannah's body showed she had been strangled.

Detectives had originally thought the badly decomposed body might be that of missing Essex schoolgirl Danielle Jones.

Fashion fan Hannah was well known among market traders in the Deptford area.

She was last seen in April 2001 by her mother before going on a shopping trip.
