Claudia Lawrence: Grandad arrested on suspicion of her murder released on bail

A grandad arrested on suspicion of murdering missing chef Claudia Lawrence has been released on police bail.

The married man, who is in his 50s, was arrested by police officers at work on Monday afternoon but released around 28 hours later.
His friends spoke of their shock that he'd become the third man arrested, in what has become one of Britain's biggest unsolved murder cases.
Claudia vanished into "thin air" in March 2009 from her terraced home in Heworth, York. Her body has never been found.
A 59-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder in May last year but released without charge.
Then two months later, in July, another man was arrested and is still on police bail on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
A North Yorkshire police statement on Tuesday said: "A man arrested on suspicion of murder was last night released on police bail in order to allow detectives time to follow up lines of inquiry."
Detective Dai Malyn, who is leading the inquiry, thanked the media and the public for their help.
"I am very grateful to the media and the public for supporting my request that this individual should, under no circumstances, be identified either in traditional media or social media platforms.
"That is because identification is an issue and publishing this man's identity could cause serious harm to my investigation.
"This continues to be the case, even though the man has been released on bail and I must ask the media and public to continue to support me and make no attempt to identify him, his place of work or his home address."
A local landlady told how the man arrested this week had 'joked' about police quizzing him in the past.
