A BROADCASTER has been criticised after announcing it is to screen a television drama about the murder of five sex workers in Ipswich.
Five Daughters, a three-part serial about the 2006 killings, is to be shown on BBC1 next year.
However, Brian Clennell, whose daughter Paula was one of the victims, told a national newspaper the families would be upset by the drama.
Steve Wright was convicted of killing Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton, Annette Nicholls and Paula Clennell in February 2008. Their bodies were discovered in locations across Ipswich over a ten-day period in December 2006.

Wright's brother, David, said the BBC's plans were in “bad taste” and could jeopardise plans for an appeal against the conviction.
A spokesman for the BBC said Five Daughters would tell the story of the women's lives “through the eyes of the family members and friends”.
