Suffolk Police – 24th March 2017

As a search continues at a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire, police are confirming that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be working alongside officers investigating Corrie McKeague’s disappearance.

A team of specialist trained search officers from Suffolk and Norfolk Constabularies are continuing work at the site and have now been through more than 845 tonnes of material in the search.

Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said; “Officers have been liaising with the HSE as part of the investigation into the circumstances around what happened to Corrie.

“At this stage our search at Milton continues. If there is a find on the site then the HSE will have a role to play in looking into the procedures that were in place and we have been speaking with them to ensure they are aware of our investigation to date.

“Officers have completed thousands of hours of enquiries to find Corrie and through the work that has been completed over the past few months we have gathered a substantial amount of information which will inform both our own and any potential HSE investigation as we move forward.”
