A woman arrested by detectives investigating the murder of a former Kent teenager has been released on bail.

The body of 17-year-old Jayden Parkinson, who used to live in Folkestone, was discovered in a disturbed grave in Oxfordshire last December.

A 48-year-old, from Didcot, being held by police on suspicion of perverting the course of justice has now been released on police bail Friday, March 14.

Jayden's former boyfriend - 22-year-old Ben Blakeley, from Reading - has been charged with her murder and perverting the course of justice.

A 17-year-old boy from Didcot has also been charged with perverting the course of justice.

Earlier this month, Jayden's funeral was held at St Martin's Church in Horn Street, Cheriton.
