A MAN who was arrested as part of an inquiry into the murder of Andrew Bedford nearly 25 years ago has been released on police bail.

The 64-year-old from Ramsey was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder on Wednesday morning (June 17) at his home.

He was taken to a police station and released on conditional bail last night to return on July 29.

Operation Ongar was re-launched on April 10 by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit to re-investigate the death of Andrew Bedford (pictured), who was last seen on Friday, September 28, 1990, at Factory Bank, off Great Whyte, Ramsey.

Detectives are confident answers lie in the community and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Police arrested the man yesterday after the discovery of bones at Stocking Fen Road, Ramsey. See previous story by clicking here.
