Libby Squire’s body released to family

Hull.

29th August 2019

After Libby’s disappearance in the early hours of Friday, 1 February this year, an extensive search was carried out in an attempt to find her. 

Sadly, her body was recovered from the Humber Estuary on Wednesday, 20 March 2019.  

The Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Superintendent Martin Smalley, leading the investigation, has issued the following statement: “In consultation with the Coroner, we are now in a position for Libby’s body to be released to her family. 

“Libby’s parents have been informed and arrangements are being made for her to be returned to them.

“Understandably, this will be an incredibly emotional time as Libby was found just over five months ago, however for investigative reasons we were unable to return Libby back to them until now. 

“I want to express my gratitude and thanks for their patience and understanding, as losing a loved one is always a heart-breaking experience, but the circumstances surrounding Libby’s tragic death make it even more devastating.

“We continue to offer our full support and I would ask people to please respect their privacy. There are no details for any funeral arrangements at this time and should this be information the family wish to share we will of course assist them however we can.

“The investigation is continuing with a file being prepared for the Crown Prosecution Service as results of the additional analysis are being finalised.”

Police car hit by object thrown from bridge

North East Lincolnshire

7 Jun 2019

A police car has been damaged after it was hit by an object thought to have been thrown from a bridge over the Peaks Parkway in Grimsby this morning Friday 7 June. 

The unknown object was thrown from a footbridge near to Pasture Street around 10am.

The officer driving had the vehicle’s blue lights on while on his way to support another officer who had stopped a disqualified driver.

The windscreen of the car was badly cracked. The officer pulled over the police car when it was safe to do so. Thankfully, neither he nor any other road users were hurt.

We are currently reviewing video footage taken from the police car and more widely to find out whoever was responsible. 

Chief Superintendent Christine Wilson, Head of Special Operations, said: “I do not and will not accept such reckless and frankly dangerous attacks like this on my officers. 

“Not only was it extremely dangerous to my officer but also to other road users as well. It is only good luck that there was little traffic on the road at the time and fortunately no-one was hurt.

“Furthermore, that vehicle will now be off the road for a period of time while it is fixed which means we have one less vehicle available to keep our communities road network safe. 

“If you have any information in connection with this, please contact us quoting reference 16/66671/19.”
