    I thought the same - does it mean someone accessed her phone at 3:15am? To do what, I wonder? To confirm whether they could access the phone and/or social media accounts whilst making their plans??

    Given the prosecution are saying that it is likely SW stored the body in the lock-up garage on Montagu Road in Walton, isn't this where the police searched? So how come they didn't pick anything up?

    I believe the SS may well have known the family, particularly with some of the children having physical conditions requiring different kinds of assistance.

    True. But wouldn't the prosecution have alluded to that yesterday?

    Sounds like her parents kept her phone, I don't think she left it willingly. It was probably 'punishment' for speaking about the SA. She would have wanted to reach out to her online friends, and those two did not want that.

    If it had been going on since she was nine, there is no way that that 'mother' did not know. Anyone laundering a little girl's underwear would know.

    Is no paper doing live updates on this case? Cambridge News started off last week, but don't seem to have continued this...?

    I am not sure that they are allowed to because of sub judice.

    I agree,she would not voluntarily leave her phone. I think they removed her from the house so she could not speak to any of the other children. They must have been confident she would not confide in his parents,or if she did they too would not believe her.

    So, @Skigh if they got her out that night, do you think it was premeditated that she would not return home again alive when he went to get her next day?

    You have to wonder how many very young girls this happens to.

    That thought has certainly crossed my mind.

    Amid all of the horror of this, the blaming of Bernadette for 'not coming home' is just awful. The brother perpetuating the idea that his sister is in hiding is one thing - he is possibly trying to cling on to a thread of hope (although as details emerge, I'm feeling my view shifting a little on this: is this also a loving son's attempt at propping up SW's story?) - but all of the begging and pleading for Bea to come home, and what she is putting the family through, is horrific. Victim blaming on a whole new level.

    But even with big cases and under same restrictions, ie Libby Squire, still had a court reporter who logged online updates. And Cam News seemed to be on it when it was due to start last week?

    Could be that there are restrictions on what can be reported from court.

    Has it been corroborated that she did actually go to the grandparents house? I mean after all they are his family and they’d probably protect him if they could. Just seems strange that she would go there without her phone after telling her mum everything and would then be collected in the morning by the person she is accusing of SA. Sounds fishy to me. I’d like to know if they have proof she was there? Cctv etc.

    I'd say the police have that covered at this stage.
