Dando Murder Suspect Held by Police
- Man taken in year after shooting of TV star

METROPOLITAN police moved a step closer to solving the year old Jill Dando murder case when they arrested a man early this morning.

"The man is being held and questioned at a London police station," said a Met spokesperson. Crucially, the man is being held on suspicion of murder. Up until today, police have questioned thousands of people but all under the more general "helping with our inquiries" label.

No further details have so far been released as to the identity of the suspect, but most experts expect him to be a someone maniacally obsessed with the former TV star, rather than a professional hit man, as police thought at one time.

Dando, who presented BBCTV's Crimewatch programme, was killed by a single gun shot as she left her Fulham home in April last year.
