CCTV of mystery man probed as part of Libby Squire investigation

0 0

Police are believed to be examining CCTV footage which shows a man getting in and out of a car minutes after the last sighting of missing student Libby Squire.

The footage, obtained by ITV news, appears to show a man sitting with his legs out the driver’s side door of a parked vehicle in Hull, said by the broadcaster to be close to where the Hull University student is thought to have disappeared.

He leaves the car, and a minute and a half later a man is then seen opening the front passenger side door and moving around before getting behind the wheel and driving away.

The clip is said by ITV news to be ‘a central part’ of the investigation into the philosophy student’s disappearance.

It comes as Humberside Police were granted an extra 36 hours to question 24-year-old Paweł Rełowicz who was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of abducting Libby.

The 21-year-old was reported missing from the city in the early hours and an intensive search has been mounted by police and volunteers over the last week.

The address where Rełowicz was arrested is about half a mile from Libby’s home.

Officers have said Libby was dropped off in a taxi near her home on Wellesley Avenue at 11.29pm on Thursday January 31 and was seen 10 minutes later on CCTV near a bench on Beverley Road, where a motorist stopped to offer help.

She is believed to have been in this area until about 12.09am on Friday.

Police said the taxi driver and motorist have been spoken to and are not suspects.

Supt Matt Hutchinson said hundreds of hours of CCTV footage had been trawled through by police investigators.

A taxi driver has lost his licence after he refused to pick up a blind man and his guide dog. Private hire driver Mohammed Saghir, of Sneinton Boulevard, in Nottinghamshire, arrived at a pub near Trent Bridge to take Mark Whittle and his wife, Catherine, home. The 59-year-old arrived outside the pub, which the couple had gone to after taking part in the Great Notts Bike Ride on June 24, 2018, and sent a text to tell them he was waiting. However, when Mr and Mrs Whittle emerged from the pub alongside Archer, their guide dog, he drove off. He pleaded guilty to failing to pick up a customer and accept a fare at Derby Justice Centre in December, and he lost his licence after a review was conducted by Nottingham City Council.
