‘No alarm bells’ rang for Nicola Bulley cops at welfare check just days before she vanished | The Sun

When police visited Nicola Bulley's house three weeks before she vanished "no alarm bells were ringing", a source says.

Just days before the mum-of-two's body was found police revealed they had rushed to her family home for a welfare check.

While they said no one was arrested during the January 10 visit, it was still being investigated.

Lancashire Police then confirmed they had referred themselves to the cop watchdog over the visit – which happened just 17 days before Nicola disappeared.

But a source has told The Sun "no alarm bells were ringing" after the officer and health professionals went to the 45-year-old's home that day.

Nicola's body was found on Sunday on the banks of the River Wyre, Lancashire – less than a mile from where she vanished three weeks prior.

Four day's before the tragic find police revealed she was treated as a high-risk missing person when she disappeared.

The force revealed Nicola had "vulnerabilities" at the time she went missing they were made aware of by partner Paul Ansell and her family.

These included "significant issues with alcohol" in the past that were brought on by her "ongoing struggles with the menopause".

It was revealed yesterday that College of Policing was asked to begin a "full and independent review" into the bungled three-week search.

The police watchdog said it has began the probe into the January 10 visit.

Their probe is also likely to examine why police disclosed painfully personal details of Nicola's struggle with alcohol and menopause.

Cops were also blasted over revealing such information by Home Secretary Suella Braverman – who said she "wasn't wholly satisfied" with their reasons for doing so.

Meanwhile, an inquest into the mum's death yesterday heard how her body was identified by her dental records.

It was adjourned ahead of a full hearing in June 2023 to allow time to "collate the facts of the case".
