A man has been charged with the murder of a young mother who has not been seen for more than a week, as police found a body in a country park.

Her car, a black Vauxhall Astra with the registration EU13 JVW, was found four days later on July 26 in Brackendale Avenue in Basildon.

Essex Police arrested a man on Friday, and on Sunday officers charged 36-year-old Gary Bennett with murder.
