A 50-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the killing of a private detective 22 years ago.

The woman is being questioned at a south London police station on suspicion of conspiracy to murder 37-year-old Daniel Morgan.

Mr Morgan, from Monmouthshire, was found with an axe in his head in a car park in Sydenham, south London in 1987.

Four men have been charged with his murder and are due to appear at the Old Bailey in July.

Mr Morgan's former business partner William John Rees, 53, also known as Jonathan, of Weybridge, Surrey; James Cook, 53, from Tadworth, Surrey; Garry Vian, 47, of no fixed address, and Glenn Vian, 49, of Orchard Road, south Croydon, are all charged with his murder.

A fifth man, Sidney Fillery, 61, a former detective sergeant with the Metropolitan Police, has been charged with perverting the course of justice.

Mr Fillery, now a barman from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, was initially involved in the investigation but was later on taken off the case.

Mr Morgan, who was originally from the village of Llanfrechfa, jointly ran a security firm called Southern Investigations.

The father of two's body was found outside the Golden Lion pub on 10 March 1987.
