Police return to river where Nicola Bulley’s body was found

Police have returned to the scene where the body of Nicola Bulley was found.

Divers are back in the River Wyre where the mum of two’s body was spotted by two dog walkers on 19 February, following a huge police investigation.

Lancashire Police confirmed that they were carrying out some work at the direction of the coroner.

The mortgage adviser disappeared after taking her dog Willow for a walk on the morning of 27 January.

The springer spaniel was found shortly after, along with Ms Bulley’s mobile phone, which was discovered on a bench beside a steep riverbank.

The phone was still connected to a work conference call.

Her body was eventually found more than three weeks later.

Ms Bulley’s disappearance attracted massive public interest, especially from amateur sleuths and social media video-makers, who have been coming up with their own theories.

Police have said these people and their actions have “distracted significantly” from the official investigation and some have since been arrested.

A full independent review has been commissioned into Lancashire Police’s handling of Nicola Bulley’s disappearance with the College of Policing overseeing the investigation.
