GREATYARMOUTH: A 24-year-old man arrested before Christmas in connection with the alleged murder of missing Great Yarmouth man Derick Tempest has had his bail extended for a second time. The man must report to the town's police station again on March 9.

Detectives believe that father-of-three Mr Tempest, 30, of Nottingham Way, Yarmouth, was murdered in a garage workshop in Camden Place on October 28.

He was last seen walking towards the premises, Hall's Garage, whose owners Jim Hall, 60, and Andrew Ventham, 49, were found dead five days later, having apparently committed suicide in a car.

Police divers have been searching the River Yare between Haven Bridge and the harbour mouth but have so far found no clues to Mr Tempest's disappearance.
