A body, which has yet to be formally identified, was discovered in the reeds of the Wyre, 22 days after Nicola was reported  missing, less than a mile from where she disappeared following a tip-off from walkers.

Nicola’s partner, Paul Ansell, 44, has revealed he and the family are in "agony" as they await word on whether the body is that of Ms Bulley. The family is reportedly "in a lot of pain" and "incredibly heartbroken".

Lancashire Police said in a statement on Sunday: "The death is currently being treated as unexplained. Nicola’s family has been kept informed of developments, and our thoughts are with them during this difficult time. We respectfully request that their privacy be respected."
