A 63-year-old man from Bradford arrested yesterday on suspicion of murdering Hebden Bridge teenager Lindsay Rimer has been released on police bail.

West Yorkshire Police said detectives are continuing their enquiries.

Lindsay was last seen on November 7, 1994, when she went to buy cornflakes from a shop in Hebden Bridge. Her body was found in April 1995 in the Rochdale Canal.

A new appeal for information on what happened to her had been launched just last week.

Last week, Lindsay’s mother Geri Rimer said: “It will be 22 years that we have been making these appeals, 22 years of complete anguish and heartbreak and still nobody has come forward.

“I know that the answer to this is in Hebden Bridge and somebody knows what happened to my daughter and I am begging them, begging them, just to come forward and tell us what happened to her.”

In recent years detectives have reviewed previous suspects and conducted interviews with potential witnesses from the 1990s.

West Yorkshire Police has been working alongside forensic experts in Canada and Germany in the hope it will shed new light on evidence gathered from the crime scene.
