Media glare on GP practice in canoe man case

A media frenzy has descended on the Gilesgate Medical Centre, County Durham, since the arrest of receptionist Anne Darwin.

An unnamed member of staff at the practice in Glue Garth said: 'We've had loads of calls. We're not making any comment, but we're still getting calls.'

Darwin worked on reception at the practice before moving to Panama, but has since returned to the UK to face questioning over her husband's disappearance after an apparent canoeing accident in March 2002.

Mrs Darwin was remanded in custody after appearing in Hartlepool Magistrates Court on Tuesday. She faced charges of dishonestly obtaining £25,000 and £137,000.

Darwin was remanded in custody until today (Friday 14 December).
