A man and women were arrested last week after police raided a house on St James Road and the iNails UK nail bar on Mill Street, both in Cannock.

The raid was part of a North Yorkshire Police investigation into missing 15-year-old Linh Thi Dieu Le.

She went missing in York on August 6, but was later found safe and well on August 13, but police have not disclosed where she was found for "operational reasons".
