Pay Corrie cops back PS2.1million.

Byline: HARRIET LINE reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

MINISTERS are being urged to reimburse police for their PS2.1million inquiry into the disappearance of Scots RAF gunner Corrie McKeague.

Tory MP Peter Aldous said Suffolk Constabulary had applied to the Home Office for repayment of the costs.

Corrie, 23, was last seen walking through Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in September 2016 after a night out with friends.

Aldous raised the case during a Commons debate on a motion to set police budgets next year, telling MPs: "Quite rightly, Suffolk Constabulary have carried out an extensive search for Corrie, which very sadly has not yet shed any light on his disappearance.

"This search has so far cost PS2.15million.

"An application has been made to the Home Office for the repayment of these costs and I would urge the Minister to process this application and reimburse Suffolk Constabulary as soon as practicably possible."

Police believe Corrie's body was inside a large bin emptied into a lorry on the night he disappeared but a a search of a landfill site north of Cambridge found no trace of him.
