STEP 1

 

Listen to to Michael Robson – a newsreader from a local radio in London – broadcasting the full news. Listen just for a gist and don't worry if there are some words you don't understand: you should be able to get the general idea.

 

STEP 2

 

Now listen again to the news and answer these questions. In question # 2,  if the answer is FALSE, correct any mistakes you find. Then check the answers.

1.

How long was the suspected murderer missing?

 

A.    a fortnight on the run
B.    12 days trying to escape from the police
C.    20 days on the run

2.

The body of the missing schoolgirl has been found.

 

A.    TRUE
B. 
  FALSE  

 
 

STEP 3

 

Now, listen again while you check Michael Robson's comments with the audio transcription.

The parents of missing schoolgirl Susan Marlowe are pleading for Brian Jackson to lead police to her body. Jackson, who's suspected of murdering the teenager, was captured while hitchhiking in France last night.

He's now being held at a village near the Swiss border where he'll be interviewed by British detectives later today.

From the village police station, Rob Luscombe:

ROB LUSCOMBE: Jackson came quietly when stopped and asked for his papers. It was his twelfth day on the run. He's the only prisoner being held in the cells of the village station at Marles. This morning he'll be taken before a magistrate in a nearby town and handed over to Interpol.

Two detectives from Kent are on their way to serve Jackson with an extradition warrant and they'll want to thank the two policemen whose chance encounter with a scruffy hitch-hiker ended a huge manhunt across France.
