Police have arrested a man on suspicion of the murder of a teenage girl who went missing on her way home from a nightclub more than 20 years ago.

Victoria Hall, 17, was found in a ditch in September 1999 five days after she was last seen alive.

The teenager from Trimley St Mary, left home on the evening of September 18 for a night out with a friend at the Bandbox nightclub in Felixstowe, Suffolk.

The girls left the club at around 1am the following morning and parted ways at around 2.20am, yards from Victoria’s home, Manchester Evening News reports.

A missing persons inquiry was launched after her parents woke up in the morning to discover their daughter hadn't returned home.

Her naked body was found five days later in Creeting St Peter, around 25 miles (40km) from where she was last seen.

None of her clothing or possessions have been found.

In 2019, Suffolk Police received fresh witness information, 20 years after her disappearance, and reopened their investigation into her death.

A man was arrested this morning (Wednesday) on suspicion of murder in connection with the inquiry, the force said.

He has been taken into police custody, where he remains for questioning.

He is not someone who has previously been arrested as part of the inquiry, the force added.

No details were given about his age or where he was arrested.

Detectives continue to ask for anyone with information about Victoria’s death to contact the Major Investigation Team.

Call the incident room directly on either 0800 092 0410 or 020 7158 0124.

These lines will be open until 10pm on Thursday, and thereafter, people are asked to call 01473 782059 and quote Operation Avon.
