My fight to stop police giving up on Corrie; Mum's fury as tip search ends.

Byline: patrick hill

THE mum of missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague is set to launch a legal bid to ensure the police search for her son can carry on.

Nicola Urquhart wants a court injunction to stop the planned filling in of a rubbish tip where she fears he is buried.

It comes after police announced they had ended a 20-week search of the site after finding no trace of the airman. The Cambridgeshire landfill was being searched after it was feared Corrie fell asleep in a bin after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, eight miles from his RAF Honington base.

Nicola, a police officer in Scotland, said last night: "They have now given up on finding Corrie. Suffolk police have handed back the landfill and are trying to have it filled back in this week. I am getting advice about the possibility of an injunction to stop them filling the landfill in, at least until there is more honesty and plain speaking from the police."

Nicola also blasted the investigation by the Suffolk force and its decision to end the search.

Corrie, 23, went missing in September.

CCTV showed him wandering alone in Bury St Edmunds town centre, visiting a takeaway and falling asleep in a doorway.

His mobile phone signal was later traced to the landfill site 13 miles away. His girlfriend April Oliver, 21, gave birth to their daughter Ellie-Louise last month. Suffolk Constabulary yesterday declined to comment on the criticism.
