A 20-YEAR-OLD WOMAN has been arrested in England today by PSNI detectives investigating the murder of 21-year-old Armagh showjumper Katie Simpson.

The woman will now be conveyed to Northern Ireland for questioning.

A man has previously been charged with the murder of Katie Simpson.

I am asking you today, if you have any information that could assist us with our investigation, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, please contact police.
