THE DAD of missing airman Corrie McKeague blockaded the entrance to a rubbish tip where his son is believed to be buried after police ended their investigation at the site.

Martin McKeague used his camper van to block the entrance to the landfill site at Milton, Cambs, in a desperate effort to get police to change their mind over stopping the search.

Officers from Suffolk and Norfolk police have spent 20 weeks sifting through 6,500 tonnes of waste at the tip but they said they have now completed the search of the area where they know waste was deposited in that period. Officers officially ended the search on Friday afternoon - 10 months after his disappearance.

It was designed by owner Charles Wicksteed, who initially made slides for his park as part of his vision to inspire and encourage play, then went on to manufacture and sell them around the world.
