Man charged over death of Emma Caldwell in 2005

A man has been charged in connection with the death of Emma Caldwell almost 17 years ago.

Ms Caldwell was last seen between 12.30am and 1.30am on April 5 2005 on London Road, Glasgow, and was reported missing by her family five days later.

The body of the 27-year-old, who had been working as a prostitute, was discovered in woods at Roberton near Biggar, South Lanarkshire, on May 8 2005.

Police said a 49-year-old man arrested in the Glasgow area on Thursday has now been charged in connection with Ms Caldwell’s death.

He remains in custody and is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday.

The unsolved case was reopened in 2015 following consideration by senior lawyers in the Crown Office and campaigning by Ms Caldwell’s mother Margaret.
