Mary Jane, 38, was last seen almost exactly a year ago, having left her home to go to the shops with just £3 and her mobile phone.

Since her disappearance on May 6 last year, relatives of the mum-of-two have made repeated appeals for information in a bid to find her.

But the former teacher’s family have sadly confirmed to the Recorder that she is one of the two women whose bodies were found inside a chest freezer after police gained entry to a ground floor flat in Vandome Close on Friday, April 26.

The identity of the second woman has not yet been confirmed.
