Wayne Couzens was arrested on suspicion of kidnap and murder

The police officer arrested on suspicion of murdering missing Sarah Everard has been taken to hospital with head injuries, Scotland Yard has confirmed.

Wayne Couzens, 49, was injured during his second night in custody where he is being questioned over the alleged kidnap and murder of Miss Everard.

He was rushed to hospital with head injuries but after being treated by medics was discharged and returned to custody.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “The suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment to a head injury sustained while in custody. He has since been discharged and returned to custody.”

There is no suggestion anyone else was involved in the incident and it is understood the matter has now been referred to the Department for Professional Standards.

Suspects in custody are carefully monitored to ensure they do not harm themselves while they are being held.Advertisement

Mr Couzens was arrested on Tuesday night at his home in Deal on suspicion of kidnapping Miss Everard, who disappeared on March 3 as she walked home from a friend’s house in Clapham, south London.

On Wednesday he was further arrested on suspicion of murder and also on suspicion of an unrelated indecent exposure allegation.

Several hours later Dame Cressida Dick, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police confirmed that human remains had been found in woodland in Kent.

The body has still not been identified and police have said it may take some time.Telegraph Breaking News alertsBe informed about the latest news stories as soon as they breakSign upBy creating a Telegraph account, you agree to our Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Policy.Related Topics
