Arrest after teenager disappears
A man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl who went missing from her Hertfordshire home.

The teenager was last seen on Wednesday at a bus stop in London Road, St Albans, and is believed to have travelled to Regent Street in London.

She contacted a friend on Wednesday evening to confirm she was "all right", but has not been heard from since.

Police have arrested a London man on suspicion of child abduction.
