BODY OF MISSING COVENTRY UNIVERSITY STUDENT (OZI AKERELE) FOUND.

A body found in a disused churchyard is thought to be that of a missing student.

Human remains were found in undergrowth off Albert Fearn Gardens in Foleshill, Coventry, by a member of the public last week.

Police believe the remains to be those of 24-year-old Ozi Akerele who went missing during the early hours of 31 January 2015.

It is thought the Nigerian student lost his way home in freezing temperatures.
