The grieving mother of murdered British schoolgirl Tia Sharp has visited the site of her death, where scores of people have left tributes to her daughter.
The 12-year-old's body was discovered at her grandmother Christine Sharp's terrace house in south London more than a week after she was reported missing.
Her mother, Natalie Sharp, wept as she surveyed the sea of flowers and cards on the pavement close to the property, hours after the grandmother's partner Stuart Hazell, 37, was charged with murder.
Hazell will appear in court today accused of killing the schoolgirl, but it's still unclear how she died.
A post-mortem examination on the body is expected to recommence this week.
Tia's 46-year-old grandmother was also arrested on suspicion of murder, but later released on bail, while her neighbour, Paul Meehan, 39, was detained on suspicion of assisting an offender and was also later bailed pending further inquiries.
