  • detectives and search teams investigating Sarah's disappearance have found, very sadly what appears to be human remains.

  • The discovery was made in an area of woodland in Ashford in Kent.

  • As you can imagine at this early stage, we are not able to confirm any identity, and indeed, that may take us.

  • Some considerable time specialist officers have been with Sarah's family to update them on the investigation and to continue to give them the best support we possibly can.

  • The news today that it was a Metropolitan Police officer who was arrested on suspicion of Sarah's murder has sent shockwaves and anger through the public and through the mat.

  • I speak on behalf of all my colleagues when I say that we are utterly appalled at this dreadful, dreadful news.

  • Our job is to patrol the streets and to protect people.

  • The investigation is large.

  • It's very fast moving, extremely determined.

  • We have had and continue to have hundreds of officers and staff working around the clock.

  • Sarah's disappearance in these awful and wicked circumstances.

  • I know our every family's worst nightmare.

  • Londoners will want to know that it is, thankfully, incredibly rare for a woman to be abducted from our streets.

  • But I completely understand that despite that women in London and the wider public perhaps particularly those in the area where Sarah went missing, we'll be worried and maybe feeling scared.

  • You should expect to see continued increased police patrols in the area as well.

  • Of course, as continued large scale investigative activity, please do report any concerns you may have whatever they may be to us, where you've been so impressed.

  • I'm very thankful for the public's support for the investigation in so many different ways, but in particular for sharing our appeals for information.

  • And we are deeply grateful to all those many, many people who came forward with information that has assisted us.

  • My thoughts tonight with Sarah, her family and her loved ones.
