Police wait to question teen murder suspect Andrew Hall
STOKE City Academy player Andrew Hall last night remained under police guard in hospital while officers wait to question him on suspicion of murdering a 15-year-old girl.
The 18-year-old has been arrested in connection with murder after Megan-Leigh Peat, of Westoning, was found dead in Ailesbury Road, Ampthill, Bedfordshire, on Saturday.
Mr Hall is being treated for an injury he sustained.
Bedfordshire Police has not confirmed the name of the man who has been arrested but said he was known to the victim.

However, a spokesman for Stoke City confirmed Mr Hall had been arrested by police.
Mr Hall played for Stoke City's Under-18 side last season and scored the goal that put them through to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.
He was one of 10 young players who have recently been offered 'professional development contracts' to play at under-21 level at the club.
Friends of Megan-Leigh have left flowers and photographs at the house. One friend wrote: "A beautiful girl on the inside and out, whose life was just beginning."
Police are appealing for witnesses.
