Cambridgeshire CC has been inundated with calls and messages from across the world from people expressing sorrow and grief following the murder of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

The council set up an online book of condolence on Monday and more than 16,000 messages had been posted within two days.

One person wrote: 'I know words can't make it better, but as a father I can appreciate your loss. Even thinking about it hurts.'

A special helpline set up by the council for school children and families that need counselling has received more than 150 calls, with some lasting over an hour. One person called from Australia.

A council spokesman said: 'This tragic event has touched people's hearts. We expected some people would need help and that is what we are here for. The helpline is primarily for people from the local area.'
