The body of British backpacker Stephanie Simpson has been found, four days after she disappeared while out hiking in New Zealand.

The 32-year-old was last seen by fellow hikers in Mount Aspiring National Park on the South Island on Saturday.

Authorities were alerted when Miss Simpson, from Essex, failed to turn up at her landscaping job in the town of Wanaka on Monday.

Her body was identified the day after search teams found her backpack and hiking boots.
