Suffolk Police respond to allegations made by Nicola Urquhart, mother of missing airman Corrie McKeague




Suffolk Police have issued a statement following reports of accusations made against them by the mother of missing airman Corrie McKeague on Facebook this week.

A spokesman said that the force ‘refutes’ allegations made by Nicola Urquhart on Wednesday that officers had been ‘dishonest’.

“Everything we have said and done has been in good faith and for the right reasons. We have sought to be as open and transparent as possible with the family,” he said.

He said that the investigation was conducted in line with the Code of Ethics and had been reviewed by an outside force.

“The most likely scenario is that Corrie McKeague unfortunately went into the bin which was emptied into the Biffa lorry and consequently ended up in the waste process. We have come to this conclusion based on all of the evidence we have available to us, and not just the weight of the bin,” he said.

He added that the investigation is now complete unless ‘new, realistic and credible information’ comes to light.

“There is no information available at this time that changes the status of the investigation,” he said.
