A 28-year-old man is in police custody on suspicion of a murder, after the body of a 25-year-old woman was discovered in a wooded area towards the edge of the Bestival festival site at Lulworth Castle in Dorset. Though initial reports did not identify the victim, she has since been named as 25-year-old Louella Michie from London. Her father is Holby City star John Michie.

Officers were called to the scene at around 1am this morning, following reports of concern for her welfare. Sadly, her body was found lying in a wooded area at the edge of the site shortly afterwards. The cause of the woman's death has not been made public, pending forensic investigations.

A statement from the Bestival team said they were "devastated to hear about this tragic news".
