Two men arrested in connection with the disappearance of William ‘Bill’ Taylor have been released with no further action.

Last week, the 18 and 22-year-old men, both from Hitchin, had been rearrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

A 53-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman were also arrested at the time and have both since been charged.

Angela Taylor of Charlton Road and Paul Cannon of Pirton Road, both in Hitchin, will appear at St Albans’ Crown Court on Monday, January 7.

The four had previously been arrested on suspicion of murder, conspiracy to murder, arson, and conspiracy to commit arson in connection with a vehicle fire at William’s home.
