The family of Becky Watts have said they are "devastated" after police searching for the missing teenager found some body parts at an address in Bristol, England.
-
In a statement released by police, Becky's mother Tania, grandmother Pat and brother Daniel Watts said: "We are devastated to be told of this latest development.
-
"We are at an utter loss to understand why anyone would want to hurt our beautiful Becky in such a brutal way.
-
"We are grateful to the police for all they have done and are continuing to do in this investigation.

"Whilst there are people in custody, none of whom are connected to the Watts family, we will not be making any further comment and we ask that our privacy is respected at this horrific time."

Becky vanished from her home in Bristol more than a week ago.

Detective Superintendent Mike Courtiour announced the grim news to reporters this morning.
-
He said in a statement: "As a result of new information received late last night, we attended a house at Barton Court in the Barton Hill area of Bristol.
-
"The information suggested that Becky's body had been cut up and a search at the new location resulted in the discovery of body parts.
-
"Although formal identification procedures have not yet been completed, we have made Becky's family aware of this discovery.
-
"As a result of this latest development, a further four men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
