The grandmother of murdered Tia Sharp has been re bailed for a third time.

Christine Sharp was arrested on suspicion of murder on August 11 after the 12-year-old’s body was found in the loft of her home in New Addington in Croydon on August 10.

A 39-year-old man, believed to be Mrs Sharp’s neighbour, was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Both have been re-bailed until a date in December, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police confirmed.
