The body of a young woman has been found just off the Clevedon Road by police hunting for missing Bristol architect Joanna Yeates.

Detectives said a couple walking their dogs found a body in Failand, North Somerset, on Christmas Day morning.


The woman's body was discovered at 9am in a verge in Longwood Lane, off Long Ashton golf course.

The area has been closed.

Ms Yeates, 25, disappeared after returning home to Clifton from an evening out with work colleagues last Friday, leaving behind all her belongings at the home in Canynge Road she shares with her boyfriend Greg Reardon.
